Staff costs of European economies by company size 2019

The average staff costs as share of turnover in selected countries by company size in Europe in 2019 show that in Italy small and medium companies were expected to spend on average 17.5 on staff costs, while companies with more turnover would pay 8.5 percent.

On average, larger companies invest a smaller share of their turnover into staff costs than smaller companies. This is a consequence of economies of scale, as the costs for cross-departmental tasks (legal department, accountants, designers, marketing) can be distributed over increased turnover.

The statistic is part of the European financial KPI and cost benchmark. This Statista DossierPlus takes an in-depth look on the most important key performance indicators (KPIs) of companies in five European economies.
