Benefits package in Riga

Home > Expat Guides > Europe > Latvia > Riga

Employees accept job offers not only upon the salary, but on the benefits that accompany many positions. Employee benefits are a "job perk" that may convince a potential employee to join a specific company.

To convince an employee to go abroad, there may be additional benefits to help ease the transition. The most common is an increase in salary.

To take a job in Latvia, benefits typically include:

  • Relocation assistance, e.g. finding accommodation, obtaining legal status
  • A company car, particularly for mid- and upper-level management positions
  • Private medical insurance (as well as insurance for the family)
  • Tuition for children at a private or international school
  • Sports club membership
  • Additional holiday time

Evaluate what benefits are valuable to you when looking for a package. For more information on the topic of expatriate compensation as well as tips for negotiating your contract please consult our article about Expat Package Compensation.
