Decathlon said it would raise entry-level wages and the salaries of current employees, according to a report by Világgazdaság.
The goal of the sporting goods retailer is to offer competitive salaries to its new team members, while also taking responsibility for its existing employees in the changing economic environment.
Together with the current, third-stage increase, the salaries of their employees have increased by an average of 20% so far this year.
The company already raised wages in two steps this year. In January, entry wages rose by an average of 6%, along with the earnings of existing employees in the fields of trade and logistics.
The next increase took place in the spring, with performance evaluations that took place after the annual evaluations ended, resulting in an average increase of 9%.
Hungary's leading sporting goods distributor employs more than 1,500 employees in 24 stores, the logistics center in Hatvan (60 km east of Budapest), and the central office.
