Nike Inc said on Monday it would be raising wages for about 7,500 employees following a global pay review, after two months when the sportswear maker concluded a probe into workplace behaviour that resulted in the departure of a number of top executives.
About 10% of its employees across all levels and geographies will receive pay adjustments, a Nike spokeswoman said.
Around 74,400 employees are working in Nike worldwide, according to a regulatory filing. The Mid-level managers of Nike at Portland headquarters are paid about $40,000 to $120,000 a year, according to job search and review website Glassdoor.
Nike has been under scrutiny for its workplace behaviour, which forced Chief Executive Officer Mark Parker to apologize in May to its employees in a company-wide town hall for its past work culture.
With many complaints, a number of high-profile executives, including Nike brand President Trevor Edwards left the company who was tipped to take over from Parker.
The Wall Street Journal detailed before in the day that the compensation alteration would start in August and will be annualized over the adjust of the company’s fiscal year.
