December, being the last month of the year and also known as the season of bonuses, employees expect quite a lot during this time of the year. Some only get disappointed but there are also others who cannot contain their happiness after receiving very good news from the company they work in.
Just like what happened with the employees of St. John properties. Their founder simply announced that every single employee will be receiving a bonus which sums up to $10 million!
St John properties, a real estate firm based in Baltimore, has just under 200 employees and this year, it surprised all of them at its holiday party with a $10 million bonus! The average amount an employee can receive amounts to $50,000.
During his speech, Edward St. John, the founder of the company said “Everybody is important in this company, and everybody performs in this company, they really do. And I gotta tell ya, you are all participating in a bonus, based on the number of years of $10 million.”
The company was celebrating reaching a goal of developing 20 million square feet in real estate and that prompted its executives to reward the employees for a job well done!
In a video uploaded by the Facebook page NowThis, employees were all in tears after receiving such good news from their employer. They were tears of happiness and hard work all rolled in one.
“I steer the boat, but they’re the ones that run the boat. They’re the ones that make the boat go. Without the team, we are nothing. We are absolutely nothing,” Edward St. John said.
