Before I started working at Reward Gateway, I likely would have struggled to think of even five employee benefits better than a pay rise. I mean, honestly, who doesn’t love a bigger salary? But then I looked at what ‘Pay rise’ actually meant today in Australia, and it became a lot easier as we’re not talking huge figures.
The reality is that last year the average pay increase was at a 12 year low of 3.4 percent, With the average salary in Australia being $74K we’re looking at pay rises of $2,516. In the UK, this equates to about £1,500, and in the U.S., just under $2,000.
