Lego gives staff extra three days off as a thank you after an ‘extraordinary year’
Lego has rewarded its 18,000 staff an extra three days off and a bonus after the world’s biggest toymaker had an “extraordinary” year of profits, according to reports.
The family-owned Danish business recorded a net profit of 6.3bn Danish kronor (£715m) for the first half of the year – a jump of 140 per cent from the same period in 2020 – as demand for the famous toy bricks grew during pandemic-induced lockdowns.
In a statement, the company said: “2021 has been an extraordinary year for the Lego group and our colleagues have worked incredibly hard to bring Lego play to more families around the world.
“The owner family wishes to acknowledge this and thank all colleagues with an extra three days off at the end of 2021.
“An additional contribution to the company’s annual bonus programme will also be paid out in April 2022.
“All employees, including those who work in our retail stores, manufacturing sites and offices, are part of the annual incentive programme and will receive the extra payment.”
