Top Indian honchos’ pay hikes set to dip: Hay Group
NEW DELHI: When a company cuts pay, how often does the boss take the same hit as everybody else? According to a report released by Hay Group, a global management consultancy, the growth in compensations of chief executive officers and other top executives may dip to single digits in the coming year.
“After witnessing double-dig- its growth in previous years, compensation of chief executive officers and other top executives is set to increase by a modest 9%- 9.4 % in the coming year,” the Top Executive Compensation Report found.
Indian enterprises are addressing salary increases by moving higher parts of the increments into pay for performance. Interestingly, variable pay, as a percentage of CTC, is highest in the retail sector (29%).
