Pay Increase Budgets Decrease for Banking & Financial Organizations

October 1, 2009    

The banking and financial organizations surveyed have projected pay increase budgets will remain the same for 2010.

Kansas City, Kan. — The Compensation Data Banking & Finance 2009 survey results show pay increase budgets have fallen to 2.9 percent.  With pay increase budgets down in 2009, the banking and financial organizations surveyed have projected pay increase budgets will remain the same for 2010. These numbers further reinforce predictions of little economic growth in the coming year.

“For many years, pay increase budgets were stagnate across all industries. The recent downturn is indicative of increased economic pressure,” said Amy Kaminski, director of marketing for Compdata Surveys. “With layoffs commonplace, many companies are working to keep current employees on staff, while keeping the organization afloat.”

The Compensation Data Banking & Finance results found pay increase budgets are highest in Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma at 3.1 percent. Louisiana and North Carolina follow with an average of 3 percent.

Pay increase budgets vary within the industry. Credit unions have high pay increase budgets, 3.4 percent, but their projected budgets for 2010 are 3.1 percent. In comparison, commercial banks have the lowest pay increase budget, 2.5 percent. Consumer finance and mortgage companies are at 2.7 percent for 2009. The 2009 Compensation Data Banking & Finance results show projected budgets for 2010 are 2.5 and 2.7 for consumer finance and mortgage companies and commercial banks, respectively.
