BBC’s £200 Million Staff Bonus

by | 7th, August 2007

DID the BBC staffers give their bonuses to Pudsey Bear? Or should we reward the good work the BBC does? And it does. Sure they corporation can be economical with the truth, produces EastEnders and has a news agenda obsessed with Israel, but where would we be without it? So much the poorer. Us and the staff:

The BBC paid out nearly £20 million in staff bonuses last year, it has been revealed.

Director-general Mark Thompson and members of the executive board waived their bonuses.

But other employees received bumper payouts to reward “exceptional performance”, The Sun revealed.

The Corporation handed out £19,429,853 during the period from July 2006 to June 2007. Most bonuses were paid last August.

Nearly half the BBC’s 23,000 employees received bonuses and the average amount was £1,805.

But one employee received £100,739 and others took home five-figure sums.
