Across the region, there is a positive attitude towards wages – none of the sectors are planning reductions, 17% do not plan to make changes in the first half of 2022, and the remaining 86% plan to increase the salaries of their employees by at least 5%.
When it comes to additional benefits and bonuses, responses from the region are divided almost in half – 57% do not plan to implement significant changes, whereas 42% share that they plan to increase the current benefits and bonuses. Only 1% say they will reduce the benefits they offer.
