At the end of the first half of the year, Profession.hu conducted a survey of the companies' wage improvements in 2023. Three-quarters of the respondents have already had their wages raised this year, some 67% once and another 9% more than once.
This rate exceeds the plans at the beginning of the year. In January, 62% of companies stated that they expected wage increases this year. In the workplaces where there was already a salary increase this year, most often (in every second company), a maximum of 10% was paid, but in some companies, the rate exceeded 20%.
Some companies expect a second round of wage increases this year.
According to the current situation, salary increases can be expected in the second half of the year for companies offering mostly white-collar jobs, as well as for companies operating in heavy industry, machine manufacturing, administration, and service support.
