How salary increases were received
41% of employees receiving a raise in salary were happy with the
increase and 33% were neutral about it. This is good news for
employers. With the majority (74%) of employees feeling satisfied
with a boost in their pay checks, this will have helped with morale,
which in turn will have a positive effect on performance.
52% feel as though they are adequately paid, but almost half of
the respondents (44%) feel they are underpaid. Only 2% were
brave enough to think they were being overpaid!
We’ve come through a tough few years and pay growth has been
low. Many employees stuck it out in their jobs, agreeing to a
freeze in pay or no increase. As the economy recovered, we saw
a fourfold increase in roles in 2013.
