    Came across this on Linkedin and thought it could be interesting to people here. I knew GW had done well through the pandemic but even so these bonusses are substantial.

    While very nice I think a decent pay rise would me more apt to show thanks for the staffs hard work

    Bit annoyingly to lose a third (assuming basic rate) to tax.

    @bubbles15 that’s the joy of any bonus but after losing a third they’ll still have a nice healthy bonus.

    Well their monthly tax rate would probably go up 40% plus 12% national insurance contributions.  Hopefully the staff had the option of asking  it to be paid into a private pension so it would be iirc tax free

    @torros – depends on what country the employees are in.

    An article on The Guardian website dated 31/07/2021 says GW has over 500 stores worldwide, and we have one in my home town in New Zealand, which only has a population of 130k, roughly.

    The article also states that GW is more profitable, percentage wise, than Google and worth more than Marks & Spencer and Asos.
