The gift was sent along with an email & letter where he addressed the employee as friend. The mail read:
Thinking back on 2014 feels good, doesn’t it? There was so much you wanted to accomplish with seemingly so little time to do it all. Now, as you stand on the brink of the New Year and look back, there is the satisfying realization that a great part of it actually got done. This feeling is not unlike the one Kahlil Gibran evokes in his lyrical commentary on work – `When you work, you are a flute through whose heart the whispering of the hours turns to music’.
Employees in Infosys are extremely happy as it was unexpected gift from leading IT company in India. Companies have been finding new ways to reward top performers instead of just giving cash. We recently saw HCL Technologies offering around 130 of its top performers the option of driving home a Mercedes or taking their family and friends on an all-expenses-paid international or domestic holiday.
This kind of gesture will boost the employees confidence to work hard towards company growth. Share this news with your employer and you never know, even you might get a decent gift to celebrate this holiday season.
