ONE business owner has been dubbed the “best boss in the world” after she gave all her staff $10,000 each and two first-class tickets anywhere as a thank you bonus.

Sara Blakely dished out the lavish gifts after her underwear company Spanx received a record-breaking valuation of $1.2billion.

In a now viral video on social media, Blakely can be seen spinning a globe at a party celebrating the monumental milestone.

As she spins the object, she can be heard saying “why am I spinning a globe?” and then drops the bombshell news.

“I’m spinning a globe because to celebrate this moment I have bought each one of you two first-class tickets to anywhere in the world,” she says.

As staff broke into tears, she continued: “You know, if you want a trip, you might want to go out to a really nice dinner, you might want to go out to a really nice hotel so with every one of those two first class tickets to anywhere in the world, you are each getting $10,000.”

Blakely also acknowledged the struggles women face in getting investors to fund their ideas.

Addressing the room, she said: “This is a very big moment for each and every one of you, and I want to also toast the women that came before me and all of the women in the world who have not had this opportunity.

“So at a moment like this, I think of my mom and my grandmother and their lack of options and all the women that came before them.”

She started Spanx with just $5,000 and hopes one day it would be worth $20million.

Spanx was recently bought out by investment firm Blackstone.

Blakely also created an empire and a foundation called the Blakely’s Red Backpack Fund that helps female entrepreneurs.
