Tourists1Wouldn’t you love to have a boss like this?

A Chinese billionaire Li Jinyuan, 57, who is the Company Chairman of Tiens Group, recently took 6,400 of his staff on a four day holiday to France, Daily Mail reports. He decided to give his staff a treat to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the founding of the company.

He booked up 140 hotels in Paris where the group visited the Louvre and various popular cultural sites in the city. Afterwards, they visited the glamorous Cote D’Azur, where Jinyuan booked 4,760 rooms in 79 four-and five-star hotels in Cannes and Monaco.

The trip ended with a world-record breaking human chain in the Cote D’Azur – the 6,400 employees arranged themselves to spell out the phrase “‘Tiens’ dream is Nice.” Guinness World Record officials present to validate the world’s biggest ever human chain.

lijun2France is expected to be 33million Euros richer thanks to the all-expenses-paid staff trip.

Founded in 1995, Tiens Group is an international conglomerate with businesses in biotechnology, health management, e-commerce, hotel and tourism among others.

    Please in order to meet up with the 30th anniversary where do i send my cv to, Im into health economics and public health.

    On a serious note though, If I do own a company I’d love to be able to do this for my staff. I love it when an organization appreciates those that actually do the ground work of helping it achieve its goals and profits.

    could well be a business strategy , i mean enough publicity, but i’m sure the staff think he is the best boss in the universe and will not hesitate to spread the word to anyone who has ears, i actually googled tiens group and i’m sure a lot of people will do the same .
    All in all the staff got a nice 4 days out of the office.

    Nigerian billionaires are too selfish and small minded….. They will rather oppress rather than uplift… shame on them.

      I keep thinking that’s the next frontier. A lot of opportunity in guiding these folks. Too many have money but no sense. Teach them how to channel their money into positive things and buy themselves a good reputation in return (as per many rightly have ugly reputations as thieving bastards) .
      The churches already tap into that by scaring people into donating and tithing and stuff. Imagine if we could set up the same for community development, local infrastructure, education, sports, youth development, entrepreneurship, award-funding, job creation, …

      I’m not explaining this right, but hope somebody gets it?
