BURGSTALL, Italy, April 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In light of COVID-19, the South Tyrol-based company Dr. Schär has decided to honour the efforts of its global production workforce with a bonus of 15% per hour worked during the coronavirus health crisis.
"Being a family-run business, we feel it's essential to support our employees in these critical times,' says Brigitte Kurz, Chief Financial Officer of Dr. Schär. 'We thought that guaranteeing our workforce all the safety equipment needed to face this challenge wasn't enough, so we're providing a bonus as a sign of recognition for their hard work.'
Dr. Schär is not only giving, but also receiving the protection masks currently used in the production plants have been offered by a Chinese supplier that, considering the hard times we are facing, provided thousands of masks to a number of Dr. Schär facilities around the world free of charge. That is what we call a true circle of solidarity.
