The windfalls will be provided to employees in the 22 different states.
Nicole Green, an employee who attended the luncheon, said that employees were requested not to disclose the size of individual gifts.
Baiada said that these gifts are a part of the projected evolution of the company to turn it into a non-profit organization by early next year, along with a way to express appreciation to employees.
Green also said that the way of appreciation by Baiada’s for his employees was still more meaningful than the financial achievement.
