Employee bonuses during coronavirus
Bonuses may help employees through tough times during the pandemic, as well as show appreciation for workers.
Facebook last week said it will give $1,000 bonuses to employees, and Workday is providing a one-time payment—equivalent to two weeks’ pay—to the majority of its employees to help accommodate any unforeseen costs. Walmart will pay $300 to full-time employees and $150 to part-time employees for a total payout of more than $365 million. Kroger is providing one-time bonuses to every hourly frontline grocery, supply chain, manufacturing and customer service associate, amounting to $300 for every full-time associate and $150 for every part-time associate.
“The true heroes in this story are our associates, and we want to provide them with additional resources and support to help them continue their remarkable effort,” Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen said in a statement.
