Employees who received increments in 2020 had an average wage increase of around 7.5%, while less than 10% of the companies surveyed had given more than 10% growth in the epidemic-affected year, and have been on the rise since March. The ratio has fallen drastically. The survey said that the timing of the increment and the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic were important factors in not getting an increase this year. Companies that decided to increase pay before the lockdown in March 2020 gave more hikes to their employees than others.

In 2020, there has not been a double-digit salary hike in any sector, and the hike in salary has been much lower than the 6 months earlier estimate of employees. On average, firms in life sciences have seen the highest wage increases, while the manufacturing and service sectors have the worst. Metal and mining, hospitality, retail sector, real estate, and auto sector were particularly poor at the time of increment.
