One woman is being called the best boss in the world after she gifted all of her employees one heck of a present.
Last week, CNN reported that investment management company Blackstone had purchased a majority stake in Spanx, valuing the shapewear brand at a whopping $1.2 billion.
Sara Blakely, Spanx’s founder and CEO, surprised her staff with two first-class tickets each to anywhere in the world during a party celebrating the deal. She is also giving them $10,000 each to spend on the trip.
Blakely posted a video on social media of the joyous moment when she announced the gifts, and the employees were so dumbfounded by the news, some of them cried, while others were slack-jawed.
