UrBC, Yekaterinburg, March 29, 2018. Only 17% of Sverdlovsk Region’s workforce expect their pay to go up this year, HeadHunter’s press service reports.

35% of companies are not planning for any changes in their current pay policy. 45% of those surveyed are not sure what their employers are up to, money wise. 3% of locally employed respondents said their management had actually cut down on their salary budgets.

According to the survey participants, their pay is expected to decline because of the business going badly (49%), plummeting sales (26%), and a new KPI system (23%). Interestingly, these are the younger professionals whose pay tends to get affected by poor sales (almost every one in three respondents gives this reason), whereas those in managerial positions are told about business difficulties (58%) and those in the middle management positions are not explained anything at all, in fact (91%).

Respondents believe these are the people in the purchasing department whose salaries get upped most often (23%), as well as office force (23%), people in the science and education sector (22%), and those in the IT sector (22%). People working in sales, transportation, and construction get pay rises less frequently (in 11%, 12%, and 12% of cases, respectively), states HeadHunter Ural’s Head of Press Service Olga Gibadullina.
