Event focuses on challenges and responses to evolving labour market demands
More than 60 AmCham member companies took part in a panel discussion devoted to wage trends in the labour market, organised by AmCham’s HR Forum.
The event centred on trends such as the recent increase in the minimum wage, general wage developments, lack of qualified workers in some sectors, cross-border hiring, and greater flexibility of employment contracts.
The panel also saw the presentation of an anonymous survey of the AmCham HR community, where the questions mostly related to the impact of emerging trends on current wages, including wage review policies and budgeting for 2023, the impact of inflation and the increase in the minimum wage, and use of counter offers for employee retention.
The interactive event allowed HR specialists to join in the discussion, share their companies’ practices, and exchange experiences with meeting the challenges posed by the evolving needs and demands of staff and issues stemming from insufficient regulation of part-time work.
The panel was co-moderated by Ivana Karanović of Karanović & Partners, Chairperson of the AmCham HR Forum, and Sanja Miladinović of PepsiCo, the Forum’s Vice Chairperson. The panellists were Ivan Vučićević, Sales Manager at Adecco; Ivana Todorović, Head of HR at Banca Intesa; Sandra Vučurović, Executive Director at Marsh; and Ivana Rako, Permanent Placement Manager at Adecco.
