Google Gives Extra Bonus After Postponing Return to Office

Google is giving its employees worldwide an extra bonus this year. The bonus follows the decision by the internet group, which is part of Alphabet, to postpone the return of staff to the office.


The company gives all employees, including interns, a one-time cash bonus of $1,600 in December, the equivalent of more than $1,400. The bonus is in addition to Google’s work-from-home allowance and well-being bonus to support its employees during the corona pandemic. However, it is not known how much money the company has set aside for this purpose.

In March, an internal Google investigation found that employee well-being has declined, prompting the company to announce a range of measures, including a $500 well-being bonus.

Last week, Google indefinitely postponed its return-to-office plan due to the rise of the Omikron variant. There is also said to be some resistance among employees to the company’s vaccination obligation. Google previously assumed that staff would be back in the office from January 10.
