- He also gave her some money to help her with her problem and reminded other employers to be understanding to their employees
An employer has shared a touching story about an employee.
KAMI learned that employer Bernie Reifkind shared the story through his LinkedIn post.
Reifkind saw his employee crying at her desk as early as 7:45 in the morning. When he asked why she was crying, she told her that she had been up all night and that her child was sick.
The boss also asked what she was doing at the office given the circumstances. The employee said that she already ran out of “sick days” and that she could no longer miss another day at work.
Reifkind decided to send her home so that she could take care of her baby. Other than that, he also gave her some money to ease her burden.
“In addition, I wrote her a check on the spot for extra money to alleviate her immediate financial worry,” he wrote.
“She was incredibly grateful. To this day, she is my best employee not just because of her talent but her loyalty,” he added.
The boss also urged other employers to understand the situation of their employees.
“Employers, please understand that most people are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders,” Reifkind said.
“Burning the candle at both ends. Trying to make ends meet. Kids, homework, spouses, significant others, elder parents, mortgage payments, auto repairs, etc,” he added.
He also reminded other employers to reassure their employees of their jobs.
“People are worried about their jobs. PLEASE reassure your hard working employees that their jobs are secure, whenever possible. Loyalty goes both ways” Reifkind said.
