With the recent legal changes, employers are being encouraged to improve employee benefits.

Average Cost For Employer Sponsored Benefits

Bearing in mind that the majority of employers in Romania do not yet offer employee benefits packages to employees, the average cost for those who do is 16 Euros per month. This relatively low amount is mainly due to the tax exemption threshold.


Our advice is to always offer employee benefits, not just for the fiscal advantages, but also because of employee loyalty and commitment.

Surprising Fact

The most surprising fact for employers is that employees are only interested in employee benefits if there is a 100% subsidy by the employer.
