In this quasi post-Covid period, with many employers still grappling with the challenges of operating in a widely changing employment environment, we have seen a regular appearance of media articles encouraging employees to seek new roles outside their current employer. The implied suggestion is that this is the only way in which employees can expect to get any reasonable increase in remuneration. Employers will need to manage the expectations created by this discussion.
There is widespread recognition that Covid-19 has posed substantial challenges in both the public health and economic arenas. At least part of that economic challenge is focussed on employment and employee management, with many employers taking difficult employment decisions to cope with lower income and funding. We examine these perceptions in the light of the latest MHR Global salary survey results.
