Monday 10 December 2012
Salaries in the Netherlands will rise by an average 2.4% next year, according to research by international consulting company Hay Group.
In September, Hay Group put the likely average Dutch pay rise at 2.6%.
On average, salaries in Europe will rise 3.3% with central and eastern European countries leading the way. Salaries in Ireland and Greece will not go up at all next year, the survey showed.
'We foresee a further reduction in spending power for Dutch workers,' regional director Alrik Boonstra told the NRC. 'Pay rises are not covering in the increasing cost of living.'
Research by the Human Capital Group published in November said salaries in the Netherlands had risen by an average 1.9% this year.
