Human Resources

Competitive salary rates and high quality of staff map Lithuania among the most attractive countries to invest.

Lithuania takes one of the top positions in terms of European countries with lowest wages. The minimum monthly wage in Lithuania is currently 290 EUR. The average gross monthly earnings also have decreased due to the economic recession. After reaching a peak of 672 EUR in the third quarter of 2008, they decreased to 624 EUR in the second quarter of 2012.

Lithuania has one of EU’s most educated people: more than 90 % aged 25 to 64 have secondary or higher education (ranking 2nd in the EU, EU-27 average being around 70 %); 40 % of the 25 - 34 year olds have higher education, which is almost twice as high as the EU-15 average.
