- This measure applies to its more than 93,300 staff members in Spain and it aims to guarantee the purchasing power of its employees.
The Management Committee of Mercadona, a company of physical supermarkets and online sales, has agreed, in line with the company’s Total Quality Model, to raise the salary of its entire workforce by 6.5% to guarantee the purchasing power of its more than 93,300 employees in Spain.
This measure has been adopted within the complex situation that we are currently experiencing, in which all of the people who form part of Mercadona are playing an essential role by adapting with agility and determination, because they are the customers’ best asset, and therefore the more they satisfy ‘The Bosses’, as customers are known internally at the company, the more progress Mercadona will make.
Starting in January of this year, the minimum starting salary at Mercadona during the first year will be €1,425 gross per month, which is €87 more per month than in 2021.
A pioneering HR policy in the sector
Mercadona has implemented a pioneering HR policy in the sector for several years, which fosters a work-life balance, training, and personal and professional development for its entire workforce. With this salary increase, the company strengthens its commitment to providing stable, high-quality jobs, a commitment that dates back over 25 years, when it made the decision to start the process of making its entire workforce permanent members of staff.
