When I worked at Best Buy back in my college days, they would set a store budget for "shrink", some fractional percentage of sales. If the store did better than the budgeted amount that year, the difference was divided equally and distributed as a bonus to all employees. From what I remember, it was in the $3-400 range one year. It didn't matter if you were the store manager or the new cashier - everyone got the same dollar amount. I don't know if they still have this practice in place, but it made sure that every employee was looking out for potential losses.
