Harikrishna Exports employees are smiling ear to ear thanks to the company's chairman Savji Dholakia’s surprise for his artisans and engineers by asking them to choose from car, flat and jewellery, as their performance incentive, says a report.

In all, 1,200 employees, who qualified in what the company calls 'loyalty programme' were given three options - car, flat and jewellery. Around 500 employees opted for brand new Fiat Punto cars, 570 for jewellery and around 207 chose a flat.

"All my dreams have come true only through my workers. A target was set for the artisans and engineers and they have achieved it. This is a big day for the entire Harikrishna family. We are the first company in the world to offer performance incentive valued at around Rs 3.60 lakh to each of the 1,200 diamond workers," said Dholakia. According to Dholakia, this year, the company has paid a total of Rs 50 crore worth of incentive to the workers. The company had started the 'loyalty programme' in 2011. In the first year, three artisans were gifted cars. Last year, around 72 artisans were given cars for achieving their annual targets, adds a report.

Jignesh Makwana, 39, a diamond artisan in the company said, "I received a car as gift last year. So, this year when I qualified in the incentive scheme, I opted for a flat. I will pay Rs 3.60 lakh as down payment in the housing scheme of the company to own a 3BHK flat." Another employee, Mehul Asalaliya, an engineer said, "I opted for jewellery as I have a car and a house. This Diwali, I will gift the jewellery to my beloved wife."

"The average monthly earning of each of my artisan and engineer is Rs 1 lakh. There is one diamond artisan, who earns Rs 3.49 lakh per month. Artisans are the backbone of our industry and we have set an example by giving those highest wages in the industry," says Dholakia.

After years of low salary, no healthcare, no overtime, cooking the books and loads of black money Sri Krishna Exports shows "generosity". Typical Asian (Indian, Chinese etc.) way of showing how generous they are, o oh o.
