Sands China Ltd has announced a discretionary allowance for more than 26,000 eligible full-time team members, completing the set of all six Macau concessionaires to have confirmed employee bonuses.
The discretionary allowance, to be paid on 8 February, will be equivalent to one month’s salary capped at MOP$45,000 which the company says is in gratitude of team members’ dedication and contributions in 2020. The discretionary allowance will benefit 99% of Sands China employees, it added.
“First of all, our special thanks go to the Macau SAR government for their leadership in keeping the community safe from COVID-19,” said Sands China President Dr Wilfred Wong. “Throughout this challenging period, Sands China’s commitment to Macau has remained unwavering, and we are looking forward to the launch of our newest themed destination, The Londoner Macao.
“Our company’s founder, the late Mr Adelson, was particularly proud of the Sands China Ltd team and our accomplishments. He was adamant, even during the most difficult times last year, that the company should do all that it can to support team members, their families, and the Macau community at large.
“It gives me great pleasure therefore to announce that, in Mr Adelson’s memory, the company will pay a discretionary allowance in appreciation of team members’ support, hard work and personal sacrifices.”
