Sara Blakely who’s the founder and CEO of the shapewear company Spanx just sold her majority stake in the company to a big investment firm for $1.2 billion. Yes, billion with a B. To celebrate she decided to share the love with her 500 employees by giving each of them two first-class tickets to any destination in the world, along with $10,000 in spending money. Crazy! I’m guessing there is a stipulation where they can’t all go at the same time. Do you think she threw in any Spanx too?
Either way, what an unbelievably nice thing to do.
