PORT ORANGE, Fla. -- Employees at a Florida healthcare staffing company are allowed to drink on the company's tab, on company time, thanks to a perk known as "Beer Cart Fridays."

Advance Medical CEO Jennifer Fuicelli told the Daytona Beach News-Journal she's been rolling out the beer cart for two years as part of an "unorthodox corporate culture" that rewards employees for hard work.

She says the company began in 2005 with four employees and now has 350 workers in two locations - Port Orange, Fla. and Broomfield, Colo.

The company also hosts costume days for Halloween, barbeques on the clock and a birthday "get out of jail free" card, for a paid day off.

Employees are restricted to one beer, which Fuicelli says is a small price that "pays huge dividends."
