Starting Salary Price Hike!

“Starting salaries have risen between 15-50% according to Croner market data”…

And it’s not only the starting salaries war to attract talent, businesses have had to react to retain their current staff by offering them pay increases. It’s said sectors like Finance, Wealth Management and IT are likely to offer up to 25% to senior professionals during the first quarter alone.

This is an ongoing impact from the skills gap which historically only effected a pocket of industries and is now widespread.

The result has seen predictions of continuing increase of pay until Quarter 2/3 when pay rates are expected to plateau for at least 6 months. So what can businesses do to help themselves moving forward?

Having a strong pay policy and salary benchmarking in place will help you navigate through this market. Allowing you to grow a strong workforce whilst maintaining a level of control on your costs.

Negotiation will also be key when attracting new hires, and the overall package must be considered.
