Taipei, Jan. 29 (CNA) More than 80 percent of employers in Taiwan will issue year-end bonuses, with the average bonus equivalent to 1.34 month’s-worth of salary, according to a survey released Monday by the 1111 Job Bank.
The survey found that 81.4 percent of the polled employers said they will give year-end bonuses, up almost 5 percentage points from a similar survey conducted last year, with the job bank attributing the growth to an improving local economy.
The amount of bonuses expected to be given also beat an average of 1.24 month’s-worth of wages in the 2017 survey, which the job bank said is additional evidence of a better economy. [FULL STORY]
