Facebook to tie employee bonuses to safety, security goals

February 07, 2019 / Valerie Bolden-Barrett

Facebook bonuses will be based on how well employees help the company rout out misinformation and hate speech on its platform, reported Fortune. CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the bonus program shift at an all-hands, media-barred meeting on Tuesday. Facebook said it wants employees to make safety and security on its platform a priority, and is aiming to do so through making it a more clear part of its compensation strategy. The way Facebook is run has "fundamentally changed," the company told Fortune in a statement, which required a shift in how its workers were incentivized, as well. According to Fortune, Facebook currently lacks a formula for weighting or assigning a dollar figure to the new bonus structure, but will let a compensation and governance committee determine the metrics.
