Robert Walters Global Salary Survey 2017


Consistent demand for talent expected in 2017    

The Robert Walters Global Salary Survey for 2017 has been released. The annual survey contains recruitment market updates, hiring advice and benchmarks salaries across our global markets.


Hiring trends in Indonesia

As Indonesia continues its march towards becoming one of the top 15 largest economies in the world, the shortage of qualified local candidates, especially at middle management level, is expected to continue in 2017.

Across particularly candidate short areas such as technical IT, compliance and digital marketing, salary rises of 40% or more will become increasingly common. 

As candidate expectations rise, company pay structures may struggle to keep pace, and recruiting the necessary talent will remain challenging in 2017 - especially in multinationals with offshore regional head offices.

Given these market conditions, organisations with well thought through, timely and efficient recruitment processes, are most likely to succeed in their quest to meet the consistent demand for talent.
