What’s My Pay Increment


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?

    my company freezed all increment since early 2009 when the market was at the lowest, until now still not lifting it. so i didn’t get any increment from last year till now. however, i got my bonus and 13th month at the end of last year. i feel grateful that i still have a job that pays me on time every month and bonus at the end of the year.
