Holiday office parties can be kinda boring. But St. John’s Properties had one this year that had all the excitement of the Oscars, The Super Bowl and Christmas morning rolled into one.
This year it gifted its employees with $10,000,000 worth of bonuses! (Yes, that’s right
$10 MILLION DOLLARZ!
St. John’s 198 employees were asked if they were excited about the “big surprise” coming and then they were told to look inside the red envelope that each person had been given.
Each pay packet was different (depending on how long they’d been with the company) but the average bonus was around $50,000 (some were MUCH more.) Everyone, from maintenance staff and receptionists to brokers and executives, got a red envelope.
Chairman and founder Edward 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.
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.
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.
My philosophy has always been to surround myself with the best and brightest and that is what we have done.”
Photos show people in total shock from the big reveal. Some said a bonus like this would be
