Walmart Canada employees to receive ‘appreciation bonus payment’

Active store, distribution centre and fleet associates will receive their bonuses Dec.

Walmart Canada is issuing what it calls an "appreciation bonus payment" to its more than 85,000 associates across the country.

The big-box retailer says bonuses will be paid Dec. 11 to active store, distribution centre and fleet associates in Canada. Full-time associates will receive $250 and part-time associates $150. Coaches and managers will also receive a bonus.

"Our associates have quickly risen above and beyond to adapt to a new way of working, serving our customers while prioritizing all the safety measures we've implemented," said Sam Wankowski, chief operations officer, Walmart Canada, in a press release.

"Today's bonus reflects our appreciation for our incredible associates who continue to ensure shelves are stocked, the checkout experience is fast, online orders are fulfilled, and customers have access to all their family needs," said Wankowski.

Since the start of the pandemic, Walmart Canada says it has invested an additional $125 million in associate support including no-cost access to tele-health care professionals, eight associate discount enhancement days and extended sick days.
