Romanians’ wages will increase in 2018 too, but not at the same rate for all employees, given that for the industrial area, monthly earnings will increase by at least 10 percent as compared to the end of 2017, according to a report released on Wednesday by the Adecco.
Due to staff shortage, the need for extra hours increases – which is, for those willing to such an effort, an opportunity to increase their income.
Lack of workforce in most economic sectors will become even more intense this year, and in order to find or keep the candidates they need, the employers offer, alongside consistent wage increases, more and more benefits, the recruiting company shows.
As for professionals (financial, legal, HR, etc.), the flexibility of the working program is becoming more and more important. At the same time, the applicants refuse, to a greater extent than in the past, certain jobs if the employer has the offices in a very busy area.
The industrial employees put a lot of emphasis on the transport provided by the employer and want to work with family members.
At blue collar level, there are major regional differences, Adecco experts note. Banat and Transylvania remain in top in terms of salaries and benefits, on the opposite being Moldova, Dobrogea and southern Romania.
“Corporate” candidates increasingly want to work in companies with good reputation in the market, both at the employer brand and customer and community level, organising team building and CSR activities.
