Pay packets are estimated to have grown by 10- 15 per cent in FY 2017-18, according to a survey by TeamLease Services.

The staffing company, in its annual report on ‘Jobs & Salaries Primer Report (FY-2017-18)’, said nine out of seventeen sectors surveyed have indicated double digit growth sentiments with overall positive sentiment.

The report relates these salaries to skills across select cities and industries for the period April 2017 to March 2018. 

Majority cities, 7 out of 9, have also shown positive outlook towards salary growth. E-commerce sector in Bangalore (maximum 15.37%) and Educational Services sector in Mumbai (maximum 14.55%) exhibited the maximum salary growth across sectors.  

Rituparna Chakraborty, Co-Founder & Executive Vice President, TeamLease Services, said, “The salary growth we have all been looking forward too is now happening in our country.  Last year, employees across major sectors have been treated to a median salary increment of 11.5% which is a phenomenal growth."

The E-commerce and Tech Start up, educational, FMCG, FMCD, Healthcare and Pharma, IT, media and entertainment, retail and retail communication sector are the the biggest gainer with 10 per cent increase in the growth sentiments across the employers surveyed.
