This year, the garden equipment manufacturer STIHL Tirol, a company of the German STIHL Group, is allocating its employees a share of its operating profit by paying staff a voluntary performance bonus. Staff will receive an average gross bonus of 1000 euros. Clemens Schaller, the Managing Director of STIHL Tirol, emphasises that: "The performance bonus is also our way of thanking our employees for their work and commitment at our site in Langkampfen, without which we would not have been able to achieve such success."
The voluntary performance bonus forms part of a package of attractive employee benefits that STIHL Tirol offers its staff. In addition to the company pension scheme, these benefits also include a voluntary travel allowance or an in-house canteen with reduced food prices.
