Morrisons to triple staff bonus payments to thank them for working through covid-19 crisis
Morrisons is to reward frontline staff working through the coronavirus crisis by increasing this year’s annual bonus payout threefold from last year.
The supermarket said this year’s bonus will become a ‘thank you’ bonus. The plans will include frontline staff receiving a 6% bonus on their earnings for the next 12 months rather than just the next eight to twelve weeks. The changes represent a bonus payment of £1,050 for a full-time frontline staff member compared to the £351 that would have been paid last year.
Morrisons will pay the bonus quarterly to avoid staff having to wait until next year to be paid. The bonus will continue to be paid as a percentage of actual earnings as in previous years.
Both permanent and temporary staff will be eligible for the bonus as will staff who off are off sick or self-isolating.
Clare Grainger, Morrisons group people director, said: “Our highly valued colleagues have stood tall amidst the coronavirus pandemic, playing their full part in feeding the nation. We want to thank every single one of them for their continued hard work during these unprecedented times by paying a much higher guaranteed bonus for the whole year in recognition of their effort.”
