Chinese boss washing the feet of her top-performing sales staff


A boss in China has expressed her gratitude for her workers' hard work by kneeling on the ground to wash their feet.

The president of a cosmetic firm as well as one other senior executive are seen in a trending video crouching down on a stage while taking socks off their staff, ready to bathe their feet.

The business leaders were rewarding their top-performing sales staff who had signed on the most customers, according to reports. 

The unusual event took place on November 2 at an award ceremony in Jinan, eastern China's Shandong Province, reported Star Video. 

The firm, whose name has not been revealed, specialises in selling cosmetic products, according to the news outlet which is affiliated to Changsha Legal Channel.

In a social media video, the two company officials can be seen putting their palms together as they walk down the aisle and bow towards the stage, where the group of eight staff members are already sitting on chairs behind basins of water.

The employees are said to have achieved the best sales figures. 

The executives kneel on stage in front of the staff members and begin removing their shocks to cleanse their feet in the unusual ritual, which is reportedly meant to boost their morale.

One supporter wrote on China's Twitter-style Weibo: 'This is a way to say thank you. I support it very much.'

Another Weibo user wrote: 'This is normal. You have made so much money for me. Washing feet for you is nothing.' 

One critic said on 163.com: 'Who invented such a low-class stunt that is to wash the other's feet in broad daylight? And who would find it interesting?'  

Some people said the ceremony was a clever way for the boss to avoid giving her staff bonuses. 

One such web user commented: 'The boss is so cunning. Washing feet for employees means they cannot ask for financial rewards.'
