Are you being paid what you’re worth? A new survey of 1,000 people by HR software provider “CIPHR” shows that 41% of respondents don’t feel like they’re paid “what they are worth.” Especially the more time that passes after they get a pay rise, the more they begin to feel like this.
They survey also showed that less than half of workers think that their salary actually does well reflect their role and experience. One in six were indecisive. But, it’s important to note that for the most part, those who did say they were satisfied with their salary did get a pay rise less than a year ago.
Additionally, of the group in more senior jobs such as CEOs and business owners, 64% do feel like they’re paid what they’re worth and 40% noted they had a pay rise less than six months ago. It’s those workers not at management level that feel that they’re not paid what they’re worth, with 48% of these people responding so.
