The tradition of assigning so-called "fish"-statuses for employees started already several years ago. The fish system is a progressive motivation system which allows the employees to get different benefits and discounts, depending on their time worked in Playtech Estonia.
The fish system is based on the principle that a foundation for good work performance is allowing you regularly time for relaxing, both physically and mentally. On each level of the system, there is a fixed maximum sum the employee can use in half a year, investing it to entertainment, health or sports. Of course, the longer the employee has worked at Playtech, the larger is the sum.
