Bunnings store team members in Australia and New Zealand will receive up to an extra $1,000 as a thank you payment with particular recognition for the customer-facing work over the past few months. Support team members will receive up to an additional $500.
The thank you payment amount will be prorated for part-time and casual team based on hours worked in the second half of FY20, during the height of COVID-19. Full-time permanent team members will receive a cash bonus and gift card, in addition to the thank you bonus.
Bunnings managing director, Mike Schneider said the hardware giant has a long history of rewarding its team in line with sales performance and this year is no different.
“This year, our team has dealt with challenges with the devastating effects of drought, bushfires and floods in Australia, and on both sides of the Tasman, we have dealt with the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
“Our teams have worked incredibly hard to keep our stores open and safe for everyone. As always, we are thanking our team for their truly incredible effort and will reward them in the best way possible. We wanted to do this as early as we could after the end of the financial year.
“We will also acknowledge our team in the usual way following the release of our full year results in August. We are so proud of our team members and their unquestionable commitment and support of each other and our customers continues to be amazing.”
