(BVI) – Amid the disruption being caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, RoadTown Wholesale (RTW) is rewarding its employees with salary bonuses.
Managing director Guy Strickland of the local food chain said RTW is offering bonuses to its workers because of the increased duties and work hours they have taken on since the pandemic.
“Frontline, administration, and supply-chain employees are working around the clock to keep our stores well stocked and sanitized, to keep our stores open for business, and our customers well serviced while at the same time juggling family responsibilities that are even more challenging today with schools and daycares closed,” Strickland said.
Come March 27, full-time employees will be awarded a one-time bonus of $500 while the food chain’s part-time workers will receive $250.
Strickland said the bonus will be paid to all employees hired before January 1, this year.
“I am so proud of all 440 employees of RTW who have stepped up during these unprecedented times. We hope this token of appreciation will show our employees how much their efforts are appreciated as they continue to step up and serve our community,” the Managing Director said.
