Dear Colleagues,

With too much of hype being created on the compensation benchmarking, salary survey & salary structure development making the rounds, this article "India's rising employee cost" comes as a creative input for the fraternity to keep themselves upgraded.

An Assocham survey of universities says that starting salaries for new recruits have risen four-fold between ’00 and ’04.

The exhorbitant salaries offered by some compnaies make it an imbalanced salary ratio...not all companies can afford such salaries for all positions..and the jobs given to them also dont justify the remuneration given to them
