Sign-on Bonus - Update 1 (Reply)



Dear all HR Practitioners,

Would like to know if your companies offer sign-on bonus for some critical positions or niche skills set positions. If you do, could you share briefly the quantum and the terms for this sign-on bonus for new hires.




To have sign on bonus or so-called joining bonus for newly hired employee, it is advisable to specific a contract period of employment & other simple terms & conditions i.e. 1 Year

Also, to state the penalty should one fail or unable to fulfill the employment terms.

The amount is subject to management decision which can go up to $5,000/- depending on the designation & job tasks requirements.
