A winning suggestion....

A firm of accountants (that shall remain nameless) wanted to engage their staff in an efficiency drive so that everyone understood the need to be careful with the firm's money.

The £100 prize was only awarded once.
It went to a manager who suggested reducing the monthly prize to £50.
