With full employment and an increasing number of offers in 2022, managers are in a strong position to ask for a raise. The Robert Walters France firm even speaks of an “unprecedented and historic” situation to our colleagues at Capital. For its 24th study of the executives market, it notes major trends.

First of all, with the health crisis, the requirements are no longer the same. Executives are attracted by the possibility of telecommuting, more flexibility and the company’s environmental commitment. This last point is taken into account by 74% of managers surveyed (compared to 64% last year).

Despite everything, the salary remains the main point scrutinized by the executives. For 68% of them, obtaining better remuneration is a priority. This should satisfy them, since in 2023 eight out of ten companies have planned increases in the face of inflation. Some even twice a year.

The firm estimates this salary increase at 4% for 2023 with potential gains of 17% if you change companies. The study screens several professional sectors (real estate, human resources, legal, etc.), beware these potential increases only concern profiles with 5 to 15 years of experience.

We detail below, sector by sector, the trades that could increase the most next year.
