-based CEO shared a story on his LinkedIn account and his post quickly went viral. The reason is that people loved the way he responded to an employee in need.
When CEO Bernie Reifkind noticed his employee crying at her desk, he knew that he had to step in.
Reifkind said it was around 7:45 am when he saw the employee sobbing. With huge bags under her eyes, it was evident that she was very sad and exhausted.
He then asked her what was wrong and his employee explained that her child was sick but she has to work as she doesn’t have any sick days left.
Even though she was tired and didn’t have enough sleep for taking care of her child, she went to work as she didn’t want to lose her job.
“I sent her home and promised that she would get paid. In addition, I wrote her a check on the spot for extra money to alleviate her immediate financial worry,” Bernie said.
“She was incredibly grateful. To this day, she is my best employee not just because of her talent but her loyalty.”
The LA-based CEO is not only good at running a business as he also knows how to take good care of his staff.
He added: “Employers, please understand that most people are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Burning the candle at both ends. Trying to make ends meet. Kids, homework, spouses, significant others, elder parents, mortgage payments, auto repairs, etc. The relentlessness of life.
“People are worried about their jobs. PLEASE reassure your hard-working employees that their jobs are secure, whenever possible. Loyalty goes both ways.”
