0

Fifty-two percent of workers in Phoenix feel underpaid, according to consulting firm Robert Half’s 2022 salary guide, which lists salaries for more than 500 positions in various industries. Phoenix is ​​tied for 9th with Austin and Denver among the 28 cities listed. Charlotte had the highest number of employees who feel underpaid at 62%.

Nationally, 31% of workers polled said they would consider quitting if they didn’t get a raise by the end of the year. In Phoenix, it’s 43%, the highest among the cities listed.

The survey finds that starting pay for professional occupations is expected to increase 3.8% overall next year, with high-demand jobs seeing a larger increase.

“Job vacancies are at an all time high and workers with in-demand skills have more bargaining power,” Paul McDonald, senior executive director, said in a press release. “In this tight labor market, increasing wages is a table issue for employers. Companies need to regularly review salary scales and discuss career paths with employees to align with expectations. “

The report also states that flexible hours and remote working options have become priorities for many employees. Seventy-five percent of those surveyed want to work remotely at least part of the time, and 34 percent who currently work remotely said they would not stay at companies that don’t allow remote working.
