Target Bonus

Every employee is eligible for variable remuneration. BASF uses the term Target Bonus: the variable component of the remuneration that is linked to individual performance and the collective performance of the BASF group. This bonus depends on your job and amounts to between 5 and 25% of an annual salary. This is a nice bonus which continues to motivate our employees every year.

The thirteenth month is an annual payment which BASF pays its employees. In November, the employee receives a 13th month over the corresponding calendar year. The thirteenth month totals 1 gross monthly salary.
