KPMG issued for the 26th continuous year, its annual Compensation and Benefits Surveys. The Survey is carried out by KPMG in collaboration with Greek and multinational companies from various sectors of the Greek market. General Managers, Financial Managers, Human Resources Managers and other executives directly or indirectly involved in HR management, make use of the survey to develop remuneration policies for their employees, to evaluate the existing rewards system and to determine annual increases.

The General Survey presents detailed remuneration information for 149 job positions and was based on a sample of 114 companies from various sectors of the Greek market.
