Singapore Government to give employees bonus

Posted by jtsmyth8 on November 27, 2007

The Government will give its 60,000 civil servants a year-end bonus of two months. Add on the half-month bonus they received in July and the total bonus civil servants will get this year amounts to 2.5 months.

Tuesday’s bonus announcement is likely to be a guide for the private sector, as was typically the case in the past.

Although the payout is a dip from the 2.7 per cent given last year, most civil servants will still go home with more – thanks to the new ‘growth bonus’. Introduced this year, it will be given in times of exceptional economic performance.

This year, the Government is forecasting the economy to grow by 7.5 to 8 per cent. For ‘good performers’, this new payout will bring another 0.5 month’s bonus, and for ‘better performers’, up to 0.8 months, said the Public Service Division in a statement on Tuesday. (link)
