2017 Salary Ranges of Job Role and Function Across Industries in Malaysia

2017 Salary Ranges of Job Role and Function Across Industries in Malaysia
By Jobstreet Malaysia

New Straits Times reported a survey conducted by Grant Thornton International Business Report (IBR) showing that more businesses in Malaysia are expecting employee salaries to increase over the next 12 months, compared to last year.

“Eighty-six per cent of businesses are expecting to offer salary increments for their employees for the year ahead, as compared to 78 per cent in the third quarter of 2016 (3Q16),” said Country Managing Partner Datuk Narendra Kumar Jasani.

Malaysia also has the highest proportion of businesses in the Asean region expecting to offer employees a pay rise in next 12 months.

Jobstreet Malaysia shared a document showing the average salary an employee can be expected to pay according to their industry and role. We extracted the results from the Central region as that is where most Klang Valley people are located as well as focusing on the top industries from Malaysia under each main field.
