The Covid-19 crisis has been a difficult time for everyone. Likewise, many tech giants have rewarded their employees with epidemics. One such company is Microsoft, which is giving $1,500 to workers "to learn about the unique and challenging fiscal year that Microsoft completed."
In an internal memo seen by The Verge, Microsoft CEO Kathleen Hogan announced that all VP-level employees as of March 31 or before March 31, 2021 are eligible for the award. This includes part-time workers and people with hourly rates in the United States and internationally who qualify.
“As a token of our gratitude for coming together as Microsoft in a challenging year,” a Microsoft spokesperson told CNET: “For introducing our employees to a gift. Once about money.” p>
Microsoft isn't the only company rewarding you with this pandemic: Facebook paid $1,000 in cash to its employees in March 2020 that helped spread the coronavirus. Amazon frontline workers received a $300 bonus during the holiday. British telecoms company BT gave $2,000 to its 60,000 employees. Twitter said employees will be compensated for purchases from the home as well as additional daycare costs paid by children.
