AMSTELVEEN  - Wages have increased by an average of 3.45 percent over the past year. This emerged from the annual remuneration survey by ADP, which provides the pay slips for almost a million workers in the Netherlands.

The increase is almost one percentage point higher than the participants in the survey had expected a year ago.

More than half (58 percent) of the 500 organisations that took part in the survey are having difficulty recruiting personnel. A quarter of them have changed their pay policy in response.

A managing director earns the most, with an average salary of EUR 106,500, the survey indicated. The cleaner earns the least, with an average of EUR 21,800.
