Indian Boss Rewards Employees With Cars, Flats, and Jewelry For Diwali
It’s pretty common in many countries to receive a nice gift basket filled with treats or food from your boss or company during the holiday season.
In India, though, there is one particular boss who likes to stand out during the festivities, especially during Diwali (the Hindu festival of lights). He likes to go a step further and show appreciation to his highest performing employees with much bigger rewards.
What could those bigger rewards be?
Well, how about a car, a flat, or some beautiful jewelry? Makes you rethink what company you should be working for.
Savjibhai Dholakia is the head of a diamond export firm in Surat, India – Hari Krishna Exports. His company will be handing out a total of 1,260 cars, 400 flats, and many pieces of jewelry to his overachieving employees.
“Our aim is that each employee must have his own home and car in the next five years. So we have decided to gift cars, homes, and jewelry to employees,” said Dholakia. “We are arranging for houses for those who already own cars, while those who don’t have a four-wheeler will get one,” he added.
This could be the first time you might be hearing about this thoughtful boss, but he’s had this generous habit for a number of years. In 2012, he gifted cars to three employees for their performance, and in 2014 he gave away 491 cars and 207 flats.
Compared to previous years, this year’s rewards are even more outstanding. So, who knows what rewards he will give in the upcoming years.
