Because of corona, LIQUI MOLY is hiking its help for all employees—again. Ernst Prost, Managing Director of the German oil and additive specialist, describes this as a “hardship allowance”.
Each employee will now receive an extra 500 euro, including temporary workers.
Because the daily work is currently taking place under such difficult conditions, “I am all the more pleased to be able to relieve you of at least some financial worries”.
A few weeks ago, the company had already paid a corona consolation of 1,000 euro to each employee.
In his letter to his colleagues, Ernst Prost criticizes that the health system has been ruined in the past through excessive cost-cutting and that this must now be corrected at disproportionately higher costs.
He also complains about the lack of foresight on the part of politicians who have pushed ahead with short-sighted reductions to the healthcare system.
This will come back to haunt us in the current crisis, will be insulting and disadvantageous to the people employed there, and will now cost many times more than what was once saved.
— Ernst Prost, Managing Director of the German oil and additive specialist
Prost explains that loyalty is not a one-way road. If a company wants their employees to be loyal, it needs to loyal to the employees, too.
