With the firm support of the Croatian Trade Union, since the 1st of January this year, Konzum increased the salaries of its employees by a net amount of 350 kuna.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 1st of February, 2019, this wage increase from Konzum refers to employees who are being paid on the basis of coefficiency and will be paid permanently, in addition to their usual monthly salaries, in an amount that is entirely non-taxable, starting with the first such salary from January this year.

“I’m glad to start this year with some good news for our employees. Their satisfaction is high on the list of our priorities, and with this move we want to show them once again how much we appreciate their daily work and efforts to contribute to stable business and good business results,” stated Slavko Ledić of Konzum’s management board.

This income increase is a continuation of Konzum’s policy of improving and increasing its workers’ rights and benefits. Due to the formerly enfeebled company’s successful business results, from the beginning of 2018 to today, salaries have increased by a total of six percent. With the increase of the paid Christmas bonus in the amount of 1,500 kuna per employee, throughout 2018 there were also numerous other benefits which were secured, such as Easter bonuses, a bonus for children, and paid private health insurance.

Despite Agrokor’s ups and downs that have continued to rock the Croatian economy over the past couple of years, Konzum has employed more than 1,300 new workers over the past year, mostly in the retail and logistics sectors. All employees are readily offered flexible working hours, a convenience that is of particular interest to parents, students, and henceforth to retirees to whom half-time employment is open, in accordance with the new statutory provisions.
