Hi,

We are also finalising incentive schemes for increased consumption and referrals.

What does the above sentence mean?

Thanks,

Presumably if you buy more or send tham custom, you will get some sort of reward. ;-)

They are the employer and you are the employee.

(Say: "What is the relationship?")

Ifyou workfor them, then I'm not too sure what they mean by 'consumption'. Maybe they mean productivity, but then they should say that. Why they want to reward their employees for consuming is anyone's guess. What exactly do you do for them? ;-)

It should, but it's a very strange way of telling you. Either that or they would prefer it if you all started putting on weight. ;-)
