Reflecting the growth expectations of 5 per cent, India Inc has projected an average salary increase of 10.3 per cent for 2013, says the Aon Hewitt Annual Salary Increase Survey.

The study shows a wide variance of salary increases across sectors. Financial services, technology, outsourcing have seen the greatest volatility and remain cautious in 2013.

Consumer and industrial sectors which so far have been resilient, also reported conservative increase projections

"In sync with the economic outlook, 10.3 per cent increase is among the lowest the country has seen in a decade (barring the subprime crisis year). Though business sentiment is strengthening on account of inflation reaching a three year low and stock markets rising upwards, the cautious streak is evident in the projected salary increase numbers," Sandeep Chaudhary, Partner, Talent & Rewards at Aon Hewitt India said.

Other Trends

A majority of organisations (93%) made a bonus payout in 2012. However, organisations reported reduction in quantum of variable pay awards.

This is one of the strategies being adopted to contain costs and ensure a tighter alignment to performance. 

While companies have not reverted to reducing coverage and eligibility of employees receiving variable pay awards, they are definitely re-examining the measures and metrics used to assess performance, ensuring strong linkage between individual performance and payout.
