Almost a quarter of all companies, or 23%, said they are offering a bonus based on company performance, up from last year’s 12%, according to Challenger, Gray and Christmas, marking the highest percentage since the job placement firm began tracking performance bonuses in 2015.
Many companies also said they are increasing the size of bonuses. Roughly 17% said bonuses will be bigger than they were last year, notching another recent high.
“We typically tend to see bonuses go up at times when the labor market is really tight and that is clearly what we are seeing right now,” said Andy Challenger, senior vice president at Challenger, Gray and Christmas. “Employees are in the driver’s seat.”
