Good chances for more wages

Basically, the chances of a wage increase in the new year are good. Every second Swiss company is planning a wage increase for its employees in 2022. This should come as a surprise to most employees. After all, less than 30 percent expected more money, as a recent survey by Jobcloud shows. Medium-sized and larger companies are more willing to pay more wages. “Smaller companies are often more cautious, especially in times of crisis, because they have less financial cushion and reserves than larger companies,” explains Davide Villa, CEO of Jobcloud, which, like 20 Minuten, belongs to the TX Group.
