Professionals in the finance and accounting sector are enjoying a bigger pay package in 2010, in line with the economy’s recovery.
According to new survey results from Robert Half, 52% of finance professionals in Singapore received salary increments over the past year. This group was also rewarded with a bonus in the past year and are highly confident of receiving another bonus payout in 2010.
Despite the increase in wages, approximately 42% of Singaporean respondents were unhappy with their remuneration packages, claiming that it was neither fair nor in line with the rest of the market. An overwhelming number also felt that switching jobs was necessary in order to gain greater leverage over salary negotiations.
