Pevec Raising Minimum Wage by 1000 Kuna, Opening New Positions

Lauren Simmonds

As many as 200 new work positions are set to be opened by Pevec.

All too often we hear how work is ”impossible” to find in the Republic of Croatia, and the on the other hand we hear how employers are fighting each other for staff, offering potential employees more and more benefits just to get them to say yes. It’s a paradoxical situation, but there are very many companies located within Croatia trying to attempt to solve the problem.

As Suzana Varosanec/Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 16th of October, 2018, at today’s press conference, Pevec announced company plans for 2019 and 2020, with a great emphasis placed on employee salaries.

Pevec announced that it will raise the minimum wage earned by its employees by as much as 1000 kuna, and in 2019, it intends to invest a huge 20 million kuna into the average gross salaries of employees, especially into the salaries of retailers and warehouse workers, which are otherwise the lowest within the company, this more than welcome move was announced by Jurica Lovrinčević from the company’s board of directors.

New members of Pevec’s management team, Dubravka Štefanac Vinovrški and Marko Rupčić, who is the director of the wholesale sector, were also presented.

In addition to wage hikes, the big plans for Pevec include the opening up of new shopping centres in Vukovar, Vinkovci, and Split during both 2019 and 2020, in which the company plans to invest about 200 million kuna, with around 200 new jobs being opened.
