As mentioned above, Paytm is awarding employees across all levels and divisions, including operations, finance and administration. Paytm has increased its award kitty from $1 million last year to $3-4 million this year. Earlier this year, China s Alibaba invested $680 million (around Rs 4,450 crore) in Paytm, which followed a $575 million investment by Alibaba s Ant Financial. In October, Patym also received an approval from RBI for a payment bank.
This isn t the first time a tech company has felt particularly generous and awarded its employees. In January, Infosys revealed that CEO Vishal Sikka had awarded 3,000 best performing employees an Apple iPhone 6.
But Chinese Internet security firm Qihoo 360 takes the crown of the most generous of them all. Ahead of the Chinese New Year, the company decided to give its best employee the following options as a reward a night with 27 year-old Japanese porn star Julia, a Porsche 911 or a 5-day all expenses trip to Bali.
