Close to two-thirds of companies plan pay rises this year
Some 62 percent of companies surveyed by recruiting site Profession.hu plan pay rises of 6-10 percent this year, the site said on Tuesday.
Around 87 percent of respondents said the aim of the pay rise was to retain employees while 51 percent also said they wanted to make new hires.
About 80 percent said the pay rises will affect the entire company in general.
