Boss takes employees on Caribbean cruise -- all 800 of them!

While the rest of us will shiver through another cold January, more than 800 employees of Iowa's Bertch Cabinets will be cruising the warm waters of the Caribbean.

Story highlights

  • The company's president offered the cruise as an incentive a year ago
(CNN)January in Iowa can be cold and dreary, but employees at a cabinet company are about to get a sunny reprieve from the winter doldrums, all thanks to the boss.
All of the more than 800 employees of Bertch Cabinets in Waterloo will get a free trip to the Caribbean next month. The company announced the trip on its Facebook page.
"We leave January 8," company president Gary Bertch told the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier. "We've got four charter aircraft that will be flying directly to Miami Sunday and staying at a nice five-star hotel. Then on Monday, we'll bus over from the hotel to the port and load up on the ship."
Bertch told his employees the trip was a reward for them after they helped the company meet its goals for the year. He offered the cruise as an incentive a year ago.
"We just tried to get all of our people pumped up a little more to achieve the various goals, both customer-oriented goals and financial goals."
That's a heck of a lot better than getting a $5 gift card and a pat on the back.
