You ask, “What’s my pay increment for 2010?” Mercer says you can expect 3.2% pay rise next year.
The HR consultancy based its projection on a recent survey of 262 companies across 11 industries.
Mercer predicts that pharmaceutical companies will give out the highest increments at 4.1%. In comparison, banking and finance employees will only get 3.1% increment.
The following are Mercer’s projected figures:
- Pharmaceutical: 4.1%
- High-tech: 3.3%
- Aerospace: 3.2%
- Consumer goods: 3.1%
- Banking and finance: 3.1%
- Chemical: 2.9%
- Property: 2.6%
Mercer notwithstanding, how much increment do you expect to get in the coming year?
