Will you be on the receiving end of a wage bump?
HR professionals in Australia are in a strong position to ask for a payrise after a spike in job demand, according to new data. The newly-released Salary Guide by recruitment firm Hays found 72% of HR employers will increase salaries during the next pay review. But the increase will be less significant than employees are hoping for. The data indicated that 64% will award an increase of up to 3%, with just 8% planning to raise wages by 3% or more – the figure employees believe represents their efforts over the last 12 months.
