Microsoft to give pandemic bonus of $1,500 to employees worldwide.jpg

Microsoft is giving employees a $1,500 pandemic bonus this year for the "unique and challenging fiscal year that Microsoft just completed," according to a report published Friday by the Verge.

The report, which cites an internal memo, says the bonuses will be disbursed to all employees below corporate vice president level that started on or before March 31, 2021, including part-time workers and those on hourly rates. Employees based in the US, as well as internationally who meet that criteria, will be eligible for the bonus.

"As a symbol of our appreciation for coming together as One Microsoft during a uniquely challenging year, we are proud to recognize our employees with a one-time monetary gift," a spokesperson for Microsoft confirmed to CNET in an email after the Verge first reported the news.

Microsoft has 175,508 employees worldwide, and the move underscores what tech companies are doing to help soften the blow of the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, Facebook gave employees a $1,000 bonus to help with working remotely, and Twitter said it'll reimburse employees for home office setup expenses and fees that parents are paying for extra day care.
