German thermoformer and injection molder PÃ¶ppelmann Holding GmbH & Co. KG found a way to make its 60th anniversary a memorable experience for its employees. The company helped pick up the tab for more than 2,000 employees and their guests to attend a celebration in Rome earlier this month. Workers came from company locations in Germany, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Denmark. This story from The Hickory Daily Record in Hickory, N.C. -- near PÃ¶ppelmann's U.S. thermoforming plant in Claremont -- notes that PÃ¶ppelmann "picked up nearly all of the tab. Employees in Claremont paid $100 each for the trip, while spouses and other guests paid $200 each." Especially in this economy -- with so many companies restricting business travel -- PÃ¶ppelmann gesture seems incredibly generous.
