Sign of recognition: GEA pays Corona Bonus worldwide

Düsseldorf (Germany), June 10, 2021 - The Executive Board of GEA Group AG has decided to pay all employees, with the exception of the top three management levels, a one-off Corona Bonus in recognition of the outstanding engagement and flexibility of the workforce throughout the pandemic. In Germany, the amount of the voluntary payment per employee is EUR 500 and is tax- and social security-free. Any entitlements under collective labor agreements shall remain unaffected by this bonus payment.

"With this bonus payment, we want to send a clear signal of recognition and thanks for the exceptional performance of our workforce during the pandemic," comments Stefan Klebert, CEO of GEA Group AG. "Whether in production, service, sales or engineering - it is largely thanks to the high level of commitment of our employees that GEA is developing very well despite the pandemic."
