From top bosses to part-time workers - all IKEA staff get the same Christmas bonus

Have yourself a Scandi little Christmas...

Ikea is making €108m available to staff around the world for Christmas bonuses.

Irish workers are expected to gain up to €1,500.

However, there are some catches. The money is paid into a pension scheme, rather than being handed over in cold hard cash. It is also only available to staff who have worked with the company for five years.

The company opened its first Irish outlet in 2009 - so only those who have been with the company since close to the beginning will get the festive payout.

All full-time staff who are eligible for the bonus get the same amount, regardless of how much they earn, according to The Local's Swedish site.

Part-time employees' get the bonus - but weighted to the number of hours that they have worked.

HR manager Karin Bergman said, "We want to be an amazing place to work, where people are happy, thrive and want to stay. We know that our colleagues primarily want to work for us because we are a values-based company with a focus on development."

In March of this year IKEA announced plans to pay Irish workers a 'living wage' of €11.50 per hour.

Its new Collection Point in Carrickmines, south-Dublin, opened in September of this year and the company is seeking a location for an outlet in Cork.

2.6 million visits were made to its Dublin store in 2015.
