Average Thai salary to rise by 5.4%

- +

Thai companies are expected to give average salary increases this year of 5.4% over 2013 as management pays more attention to retaining staff instead of recruiting new employees, according to an international human resource consulting firm.

The company surveyed 2,000 people in management at over 400 firms across 18 countries for its Asia-Pacific salary budget planning report and found the regional average increase is projected at 6.9% over last year. This prediction is lower than the last survey in September 2013, when the pay rise was estimated at 7.1%.
