As our first quarter FY21 earnings demonstrate, we’re building off our momentum in 2020 and continuing to deliver strong results. This success speaks to the culture of performance and accountability we're driving towards, which includes creating opportunities for employees at all levels to share in our company’s success, ensuring that when we win, we win together.
In this spirit, today we want to honor our frontline team members – the employees who support our Stores and Customer Experience Centers (Distribution and Customer Contact Centers) — who served as the lifeblood of our business through acute COVID impacts and delivered an incredible experience for our customers through it all.
To recognize these team members, we’re giving $300 bonuses to approximately 70,000 eligible hourly employees in the US, Canada, Japan, UK, the Republic of Ireland and Italy.
From quickly learning new ways of working with health and safety protocols, to adapting to a surge in demand for online and in-store services like Ship from Store, Buy Online Pick Up in Store and Curbside Pickup, our employees’ commitment and determination helped us get through a year like no other and we are coming out of it stronger than ever, together.
