Dubliners are the group or Irish workers most generous with their Christmas bonus, according to a new study.

The research released ahead of the busy Christmas shopping found that one in three (34 per cent) of them donate part of their bonus to charity. This is 10 per cent higher than the national average.

The findings also show that when it comes to the bonus they receive from their employer, most Dublin workers have said that the amount doesn’t matter, with 68 per cent claiming they would be grateful of any bonus at Christmas time.

The study involved 1,000 Irish adults across the country and was commissioned by One4all from Coyne Research to get a better understanding of the current Christmas bonus landscape in Ireland.

The research asked a series of questions in a bid to discover the current attitude towards bonuses in the workplace, as well as establish which professions Irish people would like to see appreciated over the Christmas period.

Nurses featured strongly on the list of professions that deserve a Christmas bonus with 75 per cent of Dubliners agreeing to that.

“Retail workers, who also work long hours over the festive period, are the second most deserving group according to the findings, with 59 per cent of people in Dublin agreeing they should be rewarded with a bonus at Christmas,” the researchers added.

“Another profession Dubs think should be rewarded are Ireland’s gardaí, with just under one in two (48 per cent) agreeing that they should also receive a bonus.”
