Many companies are forced to take extraordinary and unpopular measures in order to survive. Was no exception and the legendary producer of large motorcycles USA – Harley Davidson.
The President and CEO of Harley-Davidson Jochen Seitz (Jochen Zeitz) completely abandoned his salary. Did the same and all the members of the Board of Directors of the company. Money will be released to rescue companies in crisis.
These measures did not stop. The Board of Directors also announced the reduction of salaries of all other employees of the company – to top managers by 30% and the rest 10% or 20%.
Also the company will try to reduce all non-essential expenses. And will stop the recruitment of new staff.
The press release notes that all similar actions will take not only the American head office of the company, and all of its offices outside the United States.
