What's the worst attempt you've seen to motivate staff? My previous firm brought in a massage therapist to the office for an afternoon during busy season. Then they told the auditors (who were all out at client sites) that they needed to drive into the downtown office, pay for parking, and that none of this time would be billable, so we'd need to work late

Neither of my parents have a 401k, investments, or savings. They have nothing. I want to help them retire at 65 which would be about 15 years away. I’m looking to put about $15k/ year until then into an account for them. A couple questions i have though: 1. What type of investment account would be best to maximize? 2. Once gifted to them, will they be taxed if they receive a certain amount? I have little to no knowledge in investing so I’m open to any other ideas and/or advice.
