Porsche AG is awarding employees a €8,911 (£6,952) bonus in recognition of their role in helping the organisation achieve positive results for 2015.

The bonus will be paid to around 15,600 members of staff who are employed under the firm’s collective pay agreement.

The 2015 bonus will be adapted according to employees’ working hours and length of service as of 2015.

The car manufacturer will contribute €700 (£547) of each €8,911 (£6,952) bonus payment to the Porsche VarioRente pension scheme or to individual retirement provisions.

Oliver Blume, chairman of the executive board at Porsche AG, said: “The bonus is the justly deserved reward for the great commitment shown by our employees.

“My special thanks go out to them, because their knowledge and their dedication have contributed to us achieving such an exceptional result in what is by no means an easy environment.”
