Revealed: UAE Employees who will get 8.9% Pay Hike


Salaries in UAE could increase by as much as 8.9 per cent in 2016, with the highest adjustment expected among those who hold in-demand positions and add value to the company. The latest Robert Half 2016 Salary Guide showed that salaries of employees in finance and accounting, financial services, information technology, legal, and human resources and administration, will grow by 1.7 per cent on average next year.

Employees working as internal auditors and learning and development managers are forecast to enjoy the biggest increase of 8.9 per cent and 7.6 per cent, respectively. Gareth El Mettouri, associate director at Robert Half, noted that companies are finding it a challenge to recruit for certain positions, hence they are giving away attractive pay adjustments to select employees despite the current uncertainty.
