Podravka Financially Rewards Staff in Face of Coronavirus Crisis

Lauren Simmonds

The current coronavirus crisis is continuing to tighten its grip on the global economy and while many Croatian companies scramble for access (or basic understanding) of the recently introduced government measures, Podravka is rewarding its staff.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 21st of March, 2020, the management of the internationally recognised Croatian brand Podravka has made the praiseworthy decision to pay a one-off reward in the amount of 1,000 kuna net as a sign of gratitude to Podravka’s employees who have been working extremely hard throughout March this year, given the increased orders and strain related to the still unfolding coronavirus situation.

Entirely unselfish day-to-day engagement, especially at this time of an increased volume of work due to the need to increase production and the further marketing of Podravka’s products, the Croatian company’s management board decided to reward an additional 1,000 kuna net to their employees for the month of April, after paying a regular salary for the month of March.

“In this way, we would like to once again thank our employees for their dedicated hard work, especially to those who, during this current coronavirus situation, conscientiously and engagedly do their jobs and make Podravka’s products available to everyone across stores.

Our employees, from the production and logistics units, as well as from other departments, who together with these units have organised themselves over these days to work in three or four shifts, are precisely those who most deserve for life to not stop entirely, so in this way, we additionally want to show them that we appreciate their hard work and efforts,” said Marin Pucar, Podravka’s CEO, when remarking on making this decision.

It is worth recalling that the management of Podravka has already rewarded its employees from certain units who, in the summer months of previous years, had to cope with increased work performance due to meeting the increased market needs of the typically demanding tourist season.
