The usual stereotype surrounding celebrity employers is that they are absolute nightmares to work for. But this doesn’t appear to be the case for former American Idol guest Beyonce and her hubby Jay Z. The famous couple recently gave their employees over $4 million in bonuses!
As if we needed another reason to love Beyonce — the singer already captured our hearts with her fierce stage presence and her amazing voice. Turns out, Beyonce is also a really great person to work for, as their eighty employees recently discovered when they each wound up with an extra $45,000. Jay Z and Beyonce decided to these generous bonuses as thank yous to the hardworking individuals who keep their home in perfect shape and perfect every detail on their world tours.
Of course, none of the power couple’s employees were expecting such hefty bonus payments, which is why many were initially confused by the extra tens of thousands in their coffers. One source told Perez Hilton, “Nobody got left out. A lot of [Jay Z and Beyonce's employees] couldn’t believe it and phoned his personal assistant to check that there hadn’t been some mistake.”
But this was no mistake! Those $45,000 bonus checks were absolutely intentional. As the insider explains, “[Jay Z is] spreading the wealth around and everyone is blown away.” Now, these lucky employees have to face the difficult task of deciding what to do with all that extra money!
We’re glad to see that at least two celebrities are willing to give due credit to the employees who make their success possible. Of course, now that the word is out, Beyonce and Jay Z can expect to see even more interest from prospective employees!
