As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 18th of November, 2020, the Management Board of the Croatian Podravka made a decision on the payment of a one-time award to the company’s loyal employees in the amount of 1,000 kuna net based on the achieved business results for the first nine months of this year and as a thank you for their contribution and engagement during these extremely difficult times dominated by the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition, in accordance with the provisions of the Collective Agreement of the Podravka Group, every employee of the Croatian Podravka who has a child under the age of 15 who is entitled to healthcare is paid a gift on the occasion of the quickly approaching Christmas holidays in the amount of 600.00 kuna net.
“On this occasion, I would like to especially thank all of our workers for their enormous contribution and engagement in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. During this year, the economy has been exposed to many negative impacts, but we have shown that this company is ready to transform its business in a very short time and respond to the many challenges we face every day. I’m convinced that we will continue to successfully deal with all of these challenges and continue to build an even more successful Podravka,” said Marin Pucar, President of the Management Board of Podravka.
The Croatian Podravka has already rewarded its employees twice this year. Back in March this year, Podravka’s employees in the production and logistics units and directly related services were rewarded with 1,000 kuna net for working in three shifts, given the then increased market needs for Podravka’s products, and in July with recourse up to the maximum non-taxable amount of 3,000 kuna net. The company also paid a bonus to all employees in the amount of 1,000 kuna net.
