ArcelorMittal pays 2,000 pln bonuses to staff who vaccinate against Covid

Global steel giant ArcelorMittal is paying bonuses of up to 2,000 zloty (€441) to its staff in Poland who vaccinate against COVID-19. In the first two weeks of the campaign, more than 2,000 of the firm’s employees – a fifth of its staff in Poland – have registered for the scheme.

“We treat these activities as an investment in improving the safety of all employees and their relatives,” said company spokeswoman Sylwia Winiarek-Erdoğan, who noted that the decision was made in consultation with trade unions.

The company pays out the first half of the bonus, 1,000 zloty, to staff members who are fully vaccinated with two doses (or one in the case of the single-jab Johnson & Johnson vaccine). The same amount of money is awarded after a booster shot.

Winiarek-Erdoğan said that over 20% of employees registered for the scheme in its first two weeks. “We have already received applications during the Christmas and New Year’s break, and they are still flowing in intensively,” she told Interia. The campaign is set to last until the end of September.
