A company has given the best gift to its employees as the Christmas season approaches.
KAMI learned that the chairman and founder of the company have decided to reward his employees with a total of $10 million Christmas bonuses.
In a report by LAD Bible, during the Christmas party St. John’s Properties, the management announced that they have a huge surprise for the employees.
The staff was shocked when they opened the small red envelope distributed to them. A total of $10 million Christmas bonuses were given to 198 employees.
The average bonus was $50,000. However, it varies depending on how long they have been in the company. Some employees received a 6-digit bonus, about $250,000.
Chairman and founder Edward St. John explained the reason behind his big reward for his employees.
"To celebrate the achievement of our goal, we wanted to reward our employees in a big way that would make a significant impact on their lives,” St. John said.
"I am thankful for every one of our employees, for their hard work and dedication. I couldn't think of a better way to show it,” he added.
He also mentioned the importance of his employees to their company. St. John shared that he always believed that he should be surrounded by the “best” and the “brightest.”
"I may steer the boat, but they're the ones that run the boat. They are the ones that make the boat go. Without the team, we are nothing,” he said.
"My philosophy has always been to surround myself with the best and brightest and that is what we have done,” he added.
The employees were overwhelmed with the huge amount they received before Christmas. Some even called it “life-changing.”
