The employment promotion support is used primarily by the enterprises active in the market sector. The budgetary agencies also employ a large number of people within the framework of wage support. / Wage support is an important tool in promoting employment. Especially smaller, cost-sensitive enterprises need this tool to increase employment. Apart from public employment and training,this is the most frequently applied support tool, which is effective also for a longer term, because more than 50% of the employees retain their jobs even after the support is terminated /
