“The salary overview serves for the process of setting a reasonable and simultaneously competitive remuneration system for each company,” said Katarína Bobotová, a country manager for Grafton Recruitment Slovakia, when introducing the analysis on August 12. “It is also a useful tool for job applicants and for a better understanding of the labour market.”

Grafton conducted the salary overview study in the second quarter of 2014, analysing the data with respect to regional coverage in combination with the specifications of individual positions. The study used real remuneration figures of those who had been personally interviewed at the company from the beginning of 2013 (over 12,000 applicants), the actual remuneration figures of applicants placed through Grafton over that period and the remuneration expectations of job applicants.

The salary overview covers seven sectors: IT and Telecommunications; Manufacturing and Engineering; Construction and Real Estate; Banking and Financial Services; Sales, Retail and Marketing; Human Resources; and Shared Service Centres.

The overview shows that employers look for specialised expertise in job applicants, but also require knowledge of more than one foreign language.
