Nearly three quarters of UK catering equipment executives are receiving additional income on top of their basic salary for meeting targets set by their employers.
Initial findings from the Catering Insight Job Satisfaction and Salary Survey show that 73% of respondents currently earn performance-related bonuses.
While the results are no doubt influenced by the fact that the majority of respondents are in sales or management positions, where performance-related bonuses tend to reflect levels of responsibility, it suggests that catering equipment firms are increasingly willing to reward employees for excelling in their roles.
More interestingly, a third of executives say the bonuses they have earned in 2015 have improved on the previous 12 months. Around a third said their bonuses had remained the same.
The full results of the Job Satisfaction and Salary Survey will be published in a forthcoming edition of Catering Insight, where some of the key industry salary and employment trends will be revealed.
The survey is still open, and we urge everybody to take part in order to create the best possible data.
The survey is completely anonymous. It does not ask for any contact information and does not attach e-mail addresses to the surveys as they are completed so there is no way of knowing who has provided the answers.
