For the executives of the US company Apple, the bonus payment will depend on how managers comply with social and environmental standards. That shouldn’t affect the financial goals.
At the US company Apple, managers will soon have to be measured by other standards. The technology giant will in future link the annual bonuses for its managers to compliance with social values and environmental standards. This change will already take effect this year, it said on Tuesday in a company statement to the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
Group managers should be motivated to implement “high standards of value-based management” – in addition to good financial results. The financial targets remained unchanged.
Goals: Renewable energies and diversity in the staff
The company spoke of “Apple values” that should be adhered to, such as the focus on renewable energies, diversity in the workplace and good corporate governance. All of this will flow into the decision on bonus payments – increases or decreases “by ten percent” are possible.
