Unemployment levels remained low in the Philippines in 2016 as more local and multinational corporations set up operations in the country. Owing to a talent shortage, professionals continued to receive pay raises, especially for those moving jobs.

Filipino nationals studying or working abroad were particulary in demand, as employers sought candidates with international expertise and an ability to deal with local teams.

To attract and retain such professionals, employers may need to increase salaries to meet candidate expectations in 2017.

Now that you know how much you should get paid for that job, are you getting paid enough?
