Lidl has recently announced a further €15 million investment in pay increases for its existing workforce in the Republic of Ireland.

The discounter will invest a further £3 million in its operations in Northern Ireland.

According to Lidl, it has invested €32 million in pay rises for employees in the Republic of Ireland with employees benefitting from an approximate 13.5% increase since February 2023.

This latest investment will result in every Lidl employee benefitting from an approximate 6% pay rise, equal to, on average, a €2,000 additional pay increase for every employee per annum.

Commenting on the announcement, Maeve McCleane, chief people officer, Lidl Ireland & Northern Ireland, said: “Navigating the changing face of retail against the backdrop of rising cost-of-living, climate crisis and the impact of global geo-political events has been no easy feat, which is why now more than ever it is vital for us to continue to prioritise our people – an investment we will never compromise on.

“We have a strong commitment to our customers to offer them the best value in the market and our people are key for us to deliver on that promise.”

Living Wage 

Lidl was the first retailer to commit to paying the new Living Wage rate of €14.80 as recommended by the Living Wage Technical Group in October 2023.

Lidl was also the first company in Ireland to adopt the Living Wage recommendation in 2015.
