French term or phrase: Participation
Participation : quel est le mode de calcul qui aboutit au montant par salarié?
50% du montant du bonus est calculé à partir du temps de présence dans l'entreprise.

Est-ce que participation peut se traduire tout simplement par bonus?

Profit-related bonus/share scheme
Explanation:
In France, 'la participation' is a profit-sharing scheme offered by many companies, in which an annual profit-related bonus is awarded to all employees, in an amount proportional to their salary, but invested for a minimum of 5 years (although in certain specific circumstances it can be accessed sooner) in the company's (or group's) own shares.

Intéressement is the same system, but the money is invested in joint savings plans (like unit trusts), across a range of companies.
