Deutsche Post DHL rewards 500,000 staff with €300 bonus

Deutsche Post DHL is rewarding its 500,000 employees with a one-time €300 (£268) bonus payment following on from exceptional business performance throughout the second quarter.

Employees worldwide, except top-level executives, will receive the bonus alongside their salary payment in August 2020, as a thank you for all of their hard work and dedication during the  Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. The bonus payments will cost the organisation €200 (£179) million.

Due to the financial upsurge, the organisation has not furloughed any employees or implemented any pay cuts during this period.
