Wynn Macau, a division of Wynn Resorts, on Friday said it will pay a “Special Allowance” to all eligible Wynn Macau and Wynn Palace team members, representing 97.8% of the current workforce of 12,000 employees.
The company said this Special allowance will be equivalent to one month’s gross salary, and will be paid on January 28, 2022.
Wynn Resorts said in a statement the Special Allowance is being awarded “to show the company’s appreciation to all team members for their collective efforts during the past challenging year.”
“With the exceptional level of loyalty, commitment and discipline demonstrated by all Wynn team members, the company has been able to ensure the continuity and enhancement of its renowned service culture and hospitality standards, and helped to protect the health of all colleagues and Wynn guests,” the company said. “This has been particularly evident during the ongoing period of pandemic prevention and control, with team members actively responding to the SAR government’s encouragement for everyone to get vaccinated.”
The company said the vaccination rate for Wynn team members has reached 94.2%, which it said will “help to build herd immunity for the community.”
Last year, Wynn Macau paid what it then termed an “Annual Bonus” to all eligible Wynn Macau and Wynn Palace team members. The company likewise gave the equivalent of one month’s gross salary.
The 2021 bonus went to 98.5% of the workforce, which numbered 13,069 at the end of 2020.
Last year’s bonus was paid by a combination of cash (70%) and a stored value “Wynn Care Macau Pass” consumption card (30%).
