International Pay, Incentives and Recognition Overview

Boeing is committed to providing competitive pay programs for all its employees.

  • Base pay is dependent on the job assignment, relevant experience and applicable education, as well as performance and overall contribution. There are also performance-based incentive pay programs based on individual contributions and the Company's achievement of financial goals.
  • Employee Incentive Plan (EIP) is an annual performance-based incentive that provides cash bonuses of between 1 and 20 days of additional pay to eligible employees in the first quarter of the year if the company achieves and/or exceeds annual economic profit objectives the previous year. We all make decisions that affect the Company's revenues, costs and use of assets. The Boeing Employee Incentive Plan asks for employees' commitment to think and act like owners of the business—and gives them a direct stake in that success.
    • Targets are very demanding and track with our goal to provide total shareholder returns within the top quartile of S&P 500 companies.
    • Currently, the majority of Boeing's non-executive employees are eligible for EIP. Employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement are eligible only if the terms of the collective bargaining agreement provide for participation in the Boeing EIP.
  • Pay for Time Worked/Not Worked (International Pay Practices)
    Boeing believes that reasonable time away from the job is conducive to good health and well-being and is considered in the best interest of the employee and the Company. Holiday provisions to Boeing international locally-hired employees are governed by local laws and regulations of each particular country.
