Studies revealed that across Asia Pacific, salaries are expected to rise 5.9 percent in 2017, higher than the 5.8 percent growth this year. According to a report from Global solutions company Willis Towers Watson stated that salaries in the Philippines are projected to rise for about 6.5 percent next year. The company further explained that the salaries tend to rise steadily because companies in the Philippines focus on encouraging employees with critical skills.


 

“These can be in the form of a ‘hot skills’ allowance, retention bonuses and training/ education programs that will keep their critical talents engaged,” Vangie Daquilanea, a data service practice lead of Willis Towers Watson said.

The study reported that Pakistan will receive highest salary increases by next year with around 10.2%, followed by countries Bangladesh with 10% and India with 10%. However, Japan is predicted to have the smallest increase of salary with 2.3%.
