After Volkswagen announced a special bonus for its employees, consisting in 5900 euros, another VAG Group brand will financially motivate its workers.
Porsche announced a gross voluntary bonus amounting to 8.600 euros to its employees, after the most successful year in the history of the company. The bonus consists of two components: 7.900 euros will be paid owing to the excellent corporate result and for the particular performance made by the work force in the previous financial year 2014.
Then, the rest of 700 euros will be given as a special contribution to the Porsche VarioRente (company pension scheme) or a private pension fund.
The 2014 financial year was marked by the launch of the Porsche Macan as the second SUV in the model range. As a result the sports car manufacturer increased its deliveries compared to 2013 by about 17 per cent to almost 190,000 vehicles. Turnover rose by one fifth to just under 17.2 billion euros and the operating result increased by a good five per cent to 2.7 billion euros.
The bonus for the year 2014 will be paid to about 14,600 employees at Porsche AG with adjustments for personal working time and if employees joined the company during the year.
"No matter whether an employee works in production or in an internal service department, all workers and engineers will receive the bonus", said Uwe Hück, Chairman of the General and Group Works Council.
