“As the cost of living continues to rise, many people are struggling to make ends meet. For those on lower incomes, one of the biggest expenses can be energy bills. The current high cost of energy, including heating and electricity, can make it difficult for these individuals to heat and power their homes, which can have a major impact on their quality of life. To help alleviate this burden, Girteka has started an initiative to subsidize energy costs for its employees and will pay an extra 1 million euros to its employees,” the company announced last week.

The program is designed to reduce the influence of high energy prices on employees’ home budgets.

Analysing the market situation and cost increase, especially electricity and heating, Girteka Group has decided to support employees with a one-time payment of up to 350 euros net as a response to rising inflation.

The one-time payments will be provided for administration, maintenance, and warehouse employees, except those with higher salaries that are above the Lithuanian average.

Commenting on the move, Dainius Kinderevičius, Head of Compensation & Benefits at Girteka, said:

“We see that colleagues were affected the most by the rise in the cost of living. However, we are proud to be a supportive employer, and we are stepping up for our people when they need us to help them through this difficult period.”

Kinderevičius adds that responsibility to their colleagues means not only focusing on daily business operations, providing necessary tools and creating an environment for personal development, but also reacting to the situation and concerns that their employees can face in their daily private lives.
