For our Annual Salary Guide 2019, we asked both male and female PR and Corporate Comms professionals what kind of salary increases they received. Among respondents who received an uplift, across the board, more men were getting a pay rise. And just 6% of men said their salary remained the same, compared to 17% of women.
Even when we feel we deserve a promotion, a pay rise, or a better starting package, not everyone finds it easy to ask. As our survey shows, this can be especially true of women, who continue to struggle with being confident in the benefits they bring to an organisation.
