The Mercadona Management Committee has given their approval for a salary increase that is in line with the CPI for all of the employees (Consumer Price Index)
This measure will go into effect beginning with the paychecks issued to more than 96,000 employees in Spain and Portugal in the month of January. It will do so in a manner that is consistent with the CPI (Consumer Price Index) from December in each country.
Not only for the base salary as specified in the Collective Agreement, but also for the workforce’s total salary including the corresponding complementary payments have been approved for an increase in line with the CPI (Consumer Price Index) by the Management Committee at Mercadona,
which is a company that operates both brick-and-mortar and online supermarkets, in accordance with the Total Quality Model of the company. Mercadona is committed to providing its customers with the highest level of service possible.
According to the CPI (Consumer Price Index) in December in each country, this measure will go into effect beginning with the paychecks that are distributed to the more than 96,000 Mercadona employees who work in Spain and Portugal in the month of January.
The goal is to keep the purchasing power of all of the people who are a part of Mercadona stable because they are the company’s most valuable asset among their customers. The more satisfied “The Boss,” as the company refers to the customer on the company’s internal communications network, Mercadona will be, and the further the company will progress.
The company achieves a 9% increase in productivity.
The company is aware that increasing salaries by 6.5% in Spain and 2.7% in Portugal in 2022 will result in an increase to the company’s fixed costs, and as a result, the company has taken a number of preventative measures.
Among them are enhancements to the company’s digitalization of its processes and a commitment to raise awareness among the workforce about the analysis of the costs that they are involved in. These are measures that have led to, as we approach the end of the year, a productivity increase of 9% and cost savings of more than 200 million euro.
