COMP NEWS – Walmart has announced a series of special bonuses and incentives in an attempt to retain their warehouse workers.
Walmart is offering its warehouse employees bonuses and temporary pay raises to work every shift they are scheduled.
While the bonus amount varies from employee to employee depending on factors like warehouse location, job, and shift, Walmart is using the incentives to encourage their employees to stay on the job and work more hours, the company told Insider on Friday. The bonuses were first reported by The Wall Street Journal.
Some warehouse workers will receive $1,000 over four weeks for attending all of their scheduled shifts, while some will receive pay raises until January of 2022, Walmart said.
The bonuses incentivize workers who successfully work each shift they are scheduled. Walmart is no stranger to incentivized bonuses. The United States’ largest retailer gave numerous bonuses last year to its full-time and part-time associates, along with hourly raises for some positions.
Last year during the height of the pandemic, Walmart gave its employees several rounds of bonuses to incentivize work, Insider reported.
The bonuses included $300 for full-time hourly associates and $150 for part-time hourly and temporary associates, according to a statement released by Walmart. In March of 2021, Walmart also announced a pay increase to at least $15 to $19 an hour to its digital and stocking workers on the east and west coasts of the US.
