How would you like to work for a company that recognizes your dedication and commitment to your job during difficult times? The answer is obvious, right? Of course, you would love to be rewarded for that, especially if that means a monetary bonus! That's exactly what Stewart's Shops did for their full AND part-time employees.

Stewart's announced that all of their employees will receive a bonus check that equals the amount of each person's weekly pay. Even employees that have been working for Stewart's since this past September will get checks of $100 as a reward for their hard work. Stewart's Shops employs almost 4900 workers and for Stewart's, the total payout is significant at $2.8 million dollars.

What's the motivation behind the payout? Referring to their employees as "partners", the company states "The bonus comes as a thank you to our Partners for all their hard work and commitment throughout the pandemic".
