Google, owned by Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOGL) Inc, announced on Wednesday that it will provide an additional bonus to its employees throughout the world this year as the tech giant delays its return to the office.

A Google representative told Reuters that all employees, including the company’s extended staff and interns, will get a one-time cash bonus of $1,600 or similar value in their country this month.

The new perk is in addition to Google’s work-from-home allowance and wellbeing incentive, and is intended to help staff cope with the coronavirus pandemic, according to the spokesman, who did not specify how much the business has set aside in total.

Google’s internal poll revealed a dip in employee happiness over the previous year, prompting the business to announce a slew of rewards, including a $500 wellness cash bonus.

Last Monday, Google postponed its return-to-work plans indefinitely because to concerns about the Omicron variant and employee reluctance to company-mandated vaccines. It had previously planned for employees to return to work on January 10.
