Texas-based H-E-B knows how hard their partners have been working throughout the coronavirus pandemic. So to thank their hardworking employees, H-E-B is giving $500 bonuses to all of its employees as a thank you for overcoming every obstacle in 2020. According to the San Antonio-based grocery store, over 120,000 H-E-B employees (both full-time and part-time) will be receiving the bonuses via direct deposit. Along with the $500, H-E-B partners will receive a thank you card, a pair of socks with the H-E-B logo, and a shirt from one of its grocery store brands: H-E-B, Central Market, Joe V's, Mi Tienda, or Favor.
It shows hard work pays off at H-E-B stores.

With every purchase of This Bar Saves Lives, you are sending a packet of life-saving food to a child in need. Help us beat back hunger, one bar at a time.
H-E-B Gives $500 Bonus to All Employees
H-E-B President Craig Boyan has released the following statement:
"At H-E-B, our success starts with our people. In the face of many challenges this year, our Partners have confronted each obstacle with grace, compassion, strength, and resilience. Our Partners continue to raise the bar in pursuit of excellence, uplifting and inspiring people across our great state and beyond. As we look toward the holiday season and to 2021, it's with immense pride and great excitement we celebrate our Partners and their families for the passion and heart they exhibit every day to Texans across our great state."
Earlier this year due to COVID-19, H-E-B announced the Texas Proud Pay program which included a $2 pay raise for store, manufacturing, transportation positions, and warehousing employees. In June the company turned the pay increase into a permanent addition. The company also said it will continue to add "ongoing investments in pay," perks and benefits for employees, including making Martin Luther King Jr. Day an official, paid holiday. Also, employees that are diagnosed with coronavirus are eligible to receive extended paid medical leave.
