Just 28% of Australian employees are satisfied with their current benefits, according to recruiting experts Hays.

The skills most in-demand in 2021 17 Jun 2022
Find out why 81% of employers value teamwork as the most important soft skill.
Based on findings in the recruiter’s FY21/22 Hays Salary Guide, 15% of the close to 3,500 employers surveyed also intend to increase their use of temporary or contract staff.
More employees will receive a pay rise this year than last, but it will be a far less significant increase than they hoped for.
According to the FY 2021-22 Hays Salary Guide, released today and based on a survey of close to 600 organisations in New Zealand, representing over 1.6 million employees, 75% of employers will increase salaries in their next review, up from 44% who did so in their last review.
