Eskom cuts bonuses: report

Executive pay and bonuses are determined by the Eskom board, and are discretionary, which means that top executives may still receive a bonus, according to previous statements from the group.

:sick: They better not get bonuses. If they make their target, the staff should get a bonus. If they surpass the target, only then should the executives get bonuses.

And what should their target be.
 
I can confirm this, ex-colleague of mine was pretty upset about this, especially when asked her "do you deserve a bonus though?". They get two bonuses a year, performance and 13th cheque, I told her to chill TF out.

A 13th cheque is not a bonus but part of basic pay. In somecompanies where employees are paid an hourly rate the monthly salary is based on 40 hours a week times 4 I.e. 160 hours a month. So if you take 4 weeks times 12 months it gives you 48 weeks. A year has 52 weeks, so the 13th cheque makes up the difference of 52-48.

With structured packages the employee has the option of getting paid the actual hours worked per month or taking a 13th cheque. In the end you get paid for 52 weeks.
 
If the executives get a bonus, then expect a complete melt down at Eskom... It should be fair for all, top and grass roots people should be under the same pay grade...

Also, I have never received a 13th cheque as I think most companies still see it as a "Favour / Bonus" rather than a right...

I'd say no execs anywhere should get bonuses, ever. They already get paid more than enough to live extremely luxurious lives. Grass roots are the only people who should get incentives/bonuses.

That said though, there should be no bonuses/incentives for anyone... you're employed to do a job and get paid to do the job

Nonsense. If a company does well, all deserve bonus/incentives, top to bottom. This fosters a culture of loyalty, good work ethic and generally a well performing company. I got no issues with anyone deserving bonuses.
 
Still doing it the wrong way around... FIRST executives, senior management get no bonuses. THEN managers. THEN standard workers.

You are a manager/executive for a reason - part of that acceptance is knowing that your pay rides on the success of the company. Random worker Joe who earns a standard salary (with performance bonuses if they work well) should never not get a bonus unless everything else has been done. Executives not getting bonuses means one less trip to the Maldives. For a normal worker, it can mean no Christmas.
 
Actually, bonuses WILL be paid to everyone except management. The right thing to do in my opinion.

Blood suckling thieves you should have kicked her in the panty
