Hirings and salary hikes ahead in sales, marketing, IT


A series of enterprises in the sectors of sales, marketing and information technology in Greece intend to conduct hirings and raise salaries, according to a survey by Randstad Greece.

Although 70 percent of the 460 firms surveyed said Greece’s financial state has had a considerable impact on their activities, the market is showing signs of improvement, as 71 percent expressed their intent to hire workers and 37.1 percent to raise monthly salaries – which range from 800 euros (for IT assistants) to 7,000 euros (for human resource directors).

The HR Trends Survey also found that most firms that are planning to hire are aiming to cover needs in new skills.
