Swiss Valentines

Credit Suisse is clearly in a very chirpy mood having posted far better results than its old rival UBS. Yesterday it announced a Valentine's Day jolly for charity: any employee in could pay for a Valentine to be sung to a colleague by a group of tuneful Credit Suisse workers. Secretaries swooned to "You look wonderful tonight" and managers were mellowed by "Baby you can light my fire!" Even a sad single Irish bloke who'd recently split up with his girlfriend was cheered by the familiar strains of "In Dublin's fair city."

That Irish man was reminded that,"in Dublins fair city the girls are so pretty." Being single again wasn't so bad.

It's good for corporations to show their "human face", though it certainly helps if they are making healthy profits. This must have been a great staff morale booster, what a wonderful idea. Music and humour, two vital ingredients to instantly make you feel good.
