City bosses are the most rewarding in the UK, a study has shown.

The survey of 2,500 office workers, carried out by Jurys Inn Hotels and CrossCountry trains, showed managers in Milton Keynes are most likely to reward their team’s successes, with 97 per cent of bosses choosing to reward their teams after a successful business meeting, pitch or new business win.

The most common ways for city managers to treat their teams is with office snacks such as cakes or nibbles, followed by ordering a round of drinks or taking the team for lunch. After a stressful day workers are more likely to go home and put their feet up, watch TV or cook themselves a nice meal, rather than head to the pub, the study showed.

Suzanne Cannon, Group Marketing Manager at Jurys Inn, said: “We have seen a 144 per cent rise in the number of guests signing up to our Jurys Rewards loyalty scheme over the last year. It appears that more and more people want to feel that they are being recognised for their efforts and realise they can achieve this themselves by joining up to a rewards scheme.

“Our study showed that less than 7 per cent of people would reward their hard work by booking themselves a holiday. We feel it is so important to recognise and reward our guests’ loyalty and our Jurys Rewards programme offers a wide range of gifts as well as the ability to redeem points against room nights.
