The quarterly Labour Market Outlook provides a set of forward-looking labour market indicators, highlighting employers’ recruitment, redundancy and pay intentions.

The survey is based on responses from 1,037 employers, many of whom are drawn from the CIPD’s membership of around 140,000 HR and development professionals. The latest report reveals that UK employers continue to be able to recruit the workers they need without significantly hiking wages and that median basic pay rises of just 2% are predicted by employers in the 12 months to September 2016.

'Affordability remains the dominant reason for pay increases of less than 2%,
mentioned by 37% of all employers and 44% of private  sector employers.'
