The employee benefit expense item mainly concerns the costs of group-wide activities at holding company level.
Nearly all the personnel are on the Alliander N.V. payroll. Employee benefit expenses are charged to the organisational units where these employees work. Employee benefit expenses in the income statement totalled €121 million in 2022 (2021: €129 million), and relate to employees working in the Alliander N.V. corporate staff departments and service units.
The number of employees, based on a 38-hour week (FTEs), at year-end 2022 was 1,365 (2021: 1,284). The proportion of costs attributable to the direct deployment of Alliander staff on projects at other organisational units has been deducted from Alliander’s employee benefit expenses.
