76% of HR professionals are anticipating a salary increase and 30% are anticipating a bonus in 2015, according to the latest survey from specialist recruitment consultancy Robert Walters.
The Robert Walters Pay & Bonus Survey covered a range of professions including accounting, banking, financial services, human resources, information technology, procurement, marketing, sales and business support.
The survey found that while just over three quarters of HR professionals are expecting a pay rise next year, expectations are fairly modest with the majority nominating an amount of 1% to 3% of their base salary. A further 30% are anticipating a bonus.
The survey also found that 16% of HR professionals are looking to change jobs in the next three months, the lowest of all professions surveyed. 32% are completely satisfied and are not looking to change roles in the next two years.
Robert Walters Auckland HR Manager, Christian Brown, said:
“Most professionals rate career progression opportunities as their most important consideration when changing roles. Compared to the average across all professions, however, more HR professionals have nominated improved work/life balance as a key driver for moving roles. Employers that offer flexible working solutions as well as opportunities for career advancement will therefore be very appealing to the best HR candidates.”
