Visteon Takes Action to Address COVID-19 Impact - Seite 2
Temporary Global Compensation Actions
Visteon today announced a temporary four-month global salary reduction program; CEO salary will be reduced by 40%, the company’s Executive Committee by 30%, and non-employee Directors’ cash compensation by 30%. Subject to local laws and regulations, all other employee salaries will be reduced by 20%.
Given the uncertainty created by the growing impact of COVID-19 on the global automotive market, the company also announced that it is withdrawing the financial guidance provided in February 2020.
Protective Face Shield Donations
The company is assisting the global battle against COVID-19 by using production lines at its state-of-the-art Palmela manufacturing facility in Portugal, usually dedicated to automotive cockpit electronics, to produce protective face shields. Visteon will donate the much-needed personal protective equipment to the community medical facilities in which our employees and their families live.
“Nothing is more important to Visteon than the health and safety of our 11,000 employees who work and reside in 18 countries around the world,” said Visteon President and CEO Sachin Lawande. “The battle against COVID-19 will be won through innovation and I’m proud that our global teams have pulled together to find ways to help protect those in the medical community who tirelessly and selflessly commit themselves to protecting us and our loved ones.”
At scale, the company hopes to deliver up to 50,000 protective face shields and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to doctors and nurses in its communities. The company has also donated face masks it received from its China operations to the University of Michigan Hospital donation center.
