Working at the Ferrari factory would be a dream for many people. Not only do you get to work around some amazing cars, you also get to work for a company dedicated to its employees.
At the Geneva Motor Show, Luca di Montezemolo announced that he would be giving all of the Ferrari employees a special bonus. This comes after some record breaking financially results from 2010 to 2012. “Our company ended 2012 with record results after a triennium of continuous growth,” wrote Montezemolo in a letter to the employees. “That is down to the extraordinary amount of work you have done. In the current extremely difficult economic climate, which has seen many companies in our sector and others, experiencing great difficulty, thanks to you, we are a really nice exception to that, a company producing ever more models and one which is recognized as a great brand everywhere. Let’s continue like this, thanks to all of you for what you have done so far and especially for what you will do.”
So, today is the day that the pay slips are handed out. All of the 3,000 employees opened up their paychecks to see that they will be given a $6,000 bonus. This equals out to a total of $18,000,000 that Ferrari is giving to their employees as appreciation. On top of this bonus, employees will also receive a ‘competitive bonus’ in their next paycheck, which is around $5,000.
Not only does Ferrari treat their cars with absolute care, they also do the same for their employees.
