2014's job-hunting season is in full swing, and while retrenchment and unemployment seems to be a hot topic at the moment, many companies are continuing to search for and employ new staff. This raises the issue of payroll inflation for 2014 and has many HR professionals, as well as job seekers, looking for guidance.
CareerJunction, one of SA's top job boards, has released its latest salary review, compiled exclusively for South African job seekers and professionals as well as recruiters and employers.
