Founder and CEO of Huda Beauty, Huda Kattan, has announced that she and her family members are to forgo their salaries until the end of the year. The family members include her sisters Mona and Alya, her husband Chris and her father Ibrahim.
The Iraqi beauty mogul and her family have taken this executive decision in order to protect the livelihood of all of their employees.
In a statement to Arabian Business, Huda said, “With everything happening in the world right now - people are fighting for their lives, concerned about their health, trying to keep their loved ones safe, all while trying to put food on the table - the pandemic that we’re experiencing has, without a doubt, had a dramatic effect on the global economy and businesses of all sizes, including Huda Beauty.”
She then went on to say, “Our teams are, and always have been, at the heart of everything we do at Huda Beauty. We’re a family business and we consider each and every member of our team to be a part of our family.”
And that my friends, is the difference between a boss and a leader.
