MÁV to reward employees referring new workers
Hungarian state-owned railways company MÁV is trying to tackle its labor shortage by offering a HUF 35,000 bonus for workers who refer an acquaintance, according to a report by Hungarian daily Magyar Idők.
The money is paid if the referred employee stays at the company after the probation period is completed and has fulfilled the requirements of the position fully. The railway company has nine such positions open, Hungarian online daily index.hu reported.
The online portal notes that such incentives have been successfully applied in the private sector. Index.hu notes that at some places the reward can reach HUF 40,000-60,000.
