Newsroom 22/07/2016 | 13:01

The private sector salaries in retail & logistics and IT, as well as in private medical sector grew by 10 percent in the first half of this year compared with the same period of 2015. The  bonuses went up by 16 percent  in the same period. On the other side the oil and bank industries reported a reduction of salaries.

According to a study made by Smartree Workforce Index, the salaries had an increase of 8.89 percent even from Q1 compared with the same period of 2015, while in the Q2 was 10.93 percent compared with the same period of 2015.

“This increase was also determined by companies’ strategy regarding the employees. On an effervescent labor market, especially on segments such as IT, medical, auto, or other industries where there’s a deficit of specialists, the employers had to offer salaries and bigger benefits to keep or attract new employees, “ says  Adrian Stanciu, CEO of Smartree.

On the other side, the oil and bank industries had a decrease in this respect, determined firstly by a decrease in the oil barrel price and secondly, because of the legislative changes.

Moreover, the Smartree analysis shows how the number of employees increased in the private sector in H1. The companies seem to maintain their level of employees number. Taking this into account, the number of employees was constant in H1, growing less than 2 percent.

In addition, the value of bonuses offered by companies grew by 16 percent in H1 compared with the same period of 2015.
