STIHL Tirol again rewards performance with a corona bonus
In 2021, the garden equipment manufacturer and cordless tool specialist STIHL Tirol from Langkampfen will once again be giving employees a corona bonus. The bonus comes to 450 euros gross. Clemens Schaller, the managing director of STIHL Tirol, explains: "On the whole, we have been able to successfully weather these difficult times thanks to the high level of commitment and extraordinary efforts demonstrated by the local workforce. I would like to say a special thank you for the consistent implementation of all the safety measures and for the exceptional level of flexibility shown. Our workforce has more than earned this special bonus."
STIHL Tirol has made it through the Corona crisis well so far. The "Kurzarbeit" part-time scheme was and remains a nonissue for companies in the STIHL Group. This has enabled production to continue at a high level and for the company to meet the growing demand for STIHL products made in Tyrol to the best extent possible.
The STIHL Group is currently recording sales growth on all continents. "Whether being used by professionals in forestry, for gardening and landscaping, in municipal facilities or by private users who are engaging more with their own gardens and homes during the pandemic: STIHL products make it easier for people to work with and in natural surroundings. Demand for our products has remained high since the middle of last year and this shows that we are meeting the needs of our customers with our product portfolio", says STIHL executive board chairman, Bertram Kandziora.
