The EPO offers a wide range of compensation and benefits to its staff, pensioners and families, who altogether account for more than 23 000 individuals. As an international organisation, the EPO acts like a state by providing a sustainable social security framework covering pensions, allowances and remuneration schemes. This is paramount for a self-financed organisation that generates its own revenue and must provide current staff with the best and fairest packages, while also caring for past and future generations of EPO employees. To ensure the competitiveness of the package it offers staff and to propose evidence-based measures to decision-makers, the EPO must rely on strong social data and analyses, regular benchmarkings and internal and external studies.
These missions are driven by Directorate, Compensation and Benefits, under the Principal Directorate (PD) Welfare and Remuneration. Directorate Compensation and Benefits team is responsible for assessing and designing programs related to the employee package and for managing different social-security schemes from a long-term social and financial sustainability perspective.
