Middle East tops list of staff pay increases

Data analysed by the Maritime HR Forum shows that workers in the Middle East are set to earn the highest pay hikes this year. The forum, created by the UK’s Spinnaker Consulting, reckons that shipping employers' pay forecasts around the world for 2014 are generally more conservative than the wider non-shipping world.
“The winners in 2014 are staff based in the Middle East where projected pay reviews in shipping are as much as 8.5%, this being the only location where shipping salary inflation appears to be exceeding other sectors (for which the projected increases are around 5.5%),” Spinnaker noted.  [12/03/14]
