Chatri Sityodtong, Founder and Chairman of Evolve Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), has spent £392,000 taking 100 members of staff on an all-expenses paid five-star holiday to the Maldives after seeing 30% year-on-year growth.
Sityodtong says such trips are a “normal part of Evolve culture”. Most of his employees come from “humble backgrounds of poverty, tragedy or adversity”.
He continues: “These rewards are a small token of my heartfelt gratitude to all the phenomenal rock stars at Evolve MMA.
“Every year I take the entire team on an all-expenses paid trip to a five-star luxury resort at a surprise destination.”
Previous trips over the past five years have been to Bali, Krabi, Khao Lak and Bintan in Indonesia.
He added: “The best deserves the best. It is only fair.”
