- Mercedes-Benz employees can look forward to a record profit-sharing bonus. Salaried employees will receive a bonus of up to 7,300 euros this year.
Around 93,000 Mercedes-Benz employees in Germany can look forward to a record profit-sharing bonus. The carmaker pays the employees a bonus of up to 7,300 euros, the company announced on Friday in Stuttgart. In the previous year, the bonus was 6,000 euros. The money is to be transferred with the April fee.
"With the highest profit sharing in the company's history, we would like to thank you for your outstanding commitment and personal commitment," said Sabine Kohleisen, Chief Human Resources Officer, according to the announcement. A lot was demanded of the workforce under difficult conditions, said the chairman of the general works council, Ergun Lumali. With the bonus, the employees "participate appropriately in the success of the company".
New calculation in the current financial year
Both sides had also agreed on a new calculation from the current financial year. The calculation logic will be standardized with the existing system for executives, it said. In this way, participation for all groups of employees will be geared even more closely to the company's target achievement. A spokeswoman said that the previous premium cap of EUR 6,465 was no longer in force.
Mercedes intends to present figures for the 2022 financial year in mid-February. Despite the uncertain economic situation, the carmaker was able to continue to rely on high sales prices in the past year and again raised its outlook for the full year in October. dpa
