Bonus Letter to Employees during COVID
I am pleased to inform you that company has approved an annual bonus for its employees during COVID. Henceforth, you will be getting 20 percent extra salaries in lieu of a bonus. It’s a special bonus being awarded to all employees of the company in response to their sincere efforts during COVID. I know all employees who are showing dedication throughout this hard time without taking into consideration any difficulty. This bonus is a special way to appreciate them.
Being the CEO of the company, I am always committed to the welfare of employees because they are the backbone of our company. It is impossible for any company to flourish without a true appreciation of its employees’ efforts. It was a difficult decision to make during a difficult time when the pandemic was shaking the world. But, to enable you to cope with the stress caused by COVID, the company decided to help you this way.
Unlike other companies which announced massive layoff during the pandemic, our company remained intact with its employees. Moreover, employees have been our priority and we want to retain them. I know that many family members of most of my employees have lost their jobs. Some are also struggling with health-related issues. So, my heart goes out with family members of all such employees. That is why I, after consultation with the board of directors of the company, decided to award you a bonus to empower you to fulfill your family needs during COVID.
In the end, I want to thank you all from the core of my heart.
