Pay it Forward !
The CEO of a small company offered his employees a bonus of $10,000 or to double it and pass it on to the next employee.
The first employee elected to double and pass it on.
The CEO thought what a generous individual this was and then moved on to the next employee.
The next employee also declined the now $20 thousand dollar bonus and he elected to double and pass it on.
“Wow” the CEO thought – even the $20 grand is being passed on!
What a sense of camaraderie in this team.
The next employee also chose to double and pass on.
This continued for 6 more employees, and the bonus offer now stood at over $2.5 million.
In a panic, the CEO had to call his wealthy father to get a loan, otherwise his business will be bankrupted.
Meanwhile, the nine employees were in the kitchen deciding how to split the $2.5 million dollars evenly.
