October 25, 2020 – Employees of one Croatian JYSK store were paid record bonuses this year. Namely, in one of the stores, each employee received a 32,000 kuna bonus.
As Poslovni.hr reports, on average, JYSK employees in stores across Croatia were paid an almost 10 percent higher bonus more than in the previous year, which is why they can testify that the 2019/20 financial year for JYSK was successful.
It is also the largest amount of paid bonuses in retail since JYSK has operated in Croatia, and JYSK’s Country Manager, Vesna Kukić Lončarić, is especially proud of it.
“Of course I’m proud. Our employees have the opportunity to earn a bonus per the amount of turnover, and the bonus itself has no limit. Such a big bonus was paid because the last financial year was a great year for us,” said the manager.
The bonus system in JYSK works in such a way that employees in each store have the opportunity to earn a bonus per the growth of turnover of each store compared to the previous year, which means that the bonuses paid are different between stores.
“It is important for JYSK to have a simple bonus system that everyone is familiar with and that is easy to understand. We believe that employees are motivated when they are rewarded for their success, especially since there is no upper limit for the amount of the bonus. At the same time, I am sure that this is another reason for the excellent customer service that we provide in stores. In the end, everyone is aware that every extra effort pays off,” added Kukić Lončarić.
The highest bonuses were paid to store employees in the Westgate Shopping City Center in Zaprešić near Zagreb, and Varaždin and Čakovec.
Of particular interest is the fact that the 2019/20 financial year is specific also because all JYSK stores were completely closed for 40 days this spring and that, despite the ungrateful situation, it managed to achieve a top result.
The turnover bonus is paid based on working together regardless of the workplace, as the entire store functions as a team, and the bonus is shared among all employees in equal proportions. Considering that the achieved result is rewarded, this year the best store had the opportunity to get a bonus of over 32,000 kunas for each of the employees.
The bonus system is arranged in such a way as to reward top results and top employees, which in JYSK’s case proved to be an excellent combination.
