British companies are planning to increase pay by 2.5% this year
This year, UK private-sector employers are planning to give staff a basic annual pay leap of 2.5%. Well, the same they did last year. However, some employers are going to postpone awards until after government Brexit plans become clearer. That’s what an industry poll uncovered on Thursday.
UK wage surge rallied to its highest value for a decade at the end of 2018 at 3.5%, and Britain’s major bank notes only a minor deceleration this year because employers struggle to find employees against the backdrop of the lowest unemployment for decades.
Previously, a 2% pay rise was a standard reward for staff members.
The UK’s official measure of average weekly earnings surge normally surpasses typical pay settlements because it also comes with pay hikes employees get through promotions and job moves.
Britain’s major bank refers to a tight labor market as well as downbeat productivity surge as the key reasons why it will require lifting interest rates over the medium term, although for now Brexit is suspending its rate lift plans.
XpertHR told that companies were offering higher pay for the purpose of matching their competitors and resolving retention and recruitment problems, while higher mandatory employer pension contributions along with Brexit uncertainty turned out to be factors, which weigh on pay.
In addition to this, on Wednesday, Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May asked the EU to permit the United Kingdom to postpone Brexit until June 30 and European leaders are anticipated to discuss the matter on Thursday at a summit. The decision is expected to be taken unanimously by all remaining 27 members.
