Microsoft pays staff $1,500 for work in pandemic

Microsoft is to give its non-executive staff a $1,500 bonus for their work during the pandemic. It added: "We are proud to recognise our employees with a one-time monetary gift." The Verge reported that employees below vice-president level who joined no later than 31 March 2021 would receive the payment, including part-time workers.
