A company in Northwest China was caught shaming its underperforming employees on social media by making them post photos of themselves holding signs with degrading messages.

The strange session at the decorating company in Baoji, Shaanxi Province also involved punishments such as pushups and other exercises, media reported. 

Photos posted Monday on Sina Weibo show a group of employees standing with large signs reading "freeloader award." Some of the employees hold signs that read "warning."

One of the punished employees called the experience "humiliating."

The original poster, who claimed to be a friend of an employee, said the group was forced to post the photos on their private WeChat accounts.

Male employees were made to do 200 push-ups, while female employees performed 200 knee bends, the post read.

Gao Fang, marketing director at the company, said the punishment was arranged by a third party consultant hired to boost the employees KPIs.
