Employees at "O, The Oprah Magazine" loved their boss today!
Oprah stopped into the magazine's offices, CNN.com reports, and gave every single employee a new iPad, a personalized leather carrying case for the iPad, and - get this - a check for $10,000. And you figure many of her employees are already paid well.
"You get a car! You get a car! You get a car!"
Oh, Oprah. You love your gifting stunts, don't you. So do we.
The best part of this story is that anyone and everyone who worked at the magazine, no matter how long they'd been employed or what position they held, received the gift. A spokesperson for "O" told CNN that the generous billionaire gave these gifts to her staff â€œas a thank you for their hard work and dedication."
It really is a great gesture and anyone who's ever been lucky enough to work for a generous boss knows how good it feels to be recognized and acknowledged for your effort. But does it make you happier at work.
If your boss walked over to your desk and handed you $10,000 would it make you work harder for the rest of the day, or the rest of the year. I think I would! Just in case there was a chance for another $10,000 check around the corner.
