Sands China to award employees one-month bonus

Macau casino operator Sands China has announced it is paying a one-off special bonus to eligible employees, rewarding them for their contribution towards the company’s ongoing success and achievements.

The bonus is set to be paid on August 31, 2018 – and will benefit 99 percent of Sands China team members.

“Sands China has always viewed its team members as vital to the success of the business, and continues to strive to provide them with a comprehensive and competitive benefits programme,” said Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd.

“After being the first to announce a salary increase and bonus in January – and following February’s addition of a 5-day paternity leave policy and May’s increase in the maternity leave period to 70 days – the company is pleased to announce this one-off special appreciation bonus for eligible team members. We are very proud of our team members for their contributions and hard work, and recognize their impact on helping ensure the company continues to go from strength to strength. It is with gratitude that we celebrate with them and acknowledge their contributions with this bonus.”

Eligible team members must have joined the company before June 1, 2018 and must have completed at least one year of continuous service before August 31, 2018, will receive a bonus equivalent to one month’s salary, subject to a ceiling of MOP 50,000 (US$6,185).

Prorated bonuses will be given to team members with less than one year of service.
