2014 HR Survey Results - Brazil
When we launched this survey we published it as a salary survey first and foremost, however after looking at the results and seeing some of the interesting data that has come as a result, I’ve realized that this is more of an HR trend analysis than it is a salary survey. The results on pay increases and bonuses are always useful but, for me anyway, it is the trends and demographic data that I have found particularly fascinating. In each country survey we have made comparisons with the global data that we have received, which should attempt to make the data ever more relevant for global HR leaders.
The specific HR trends for Brazil pull up some great facts but if I have to pick a few highlights the main three would be:
1. Every other location around the world had a smattering of expats or HR professionals from a different country and while Portuguese is a required language in Brazil it was quite an incredible statistic to say that 99% of people there are Brazilian. Going forward we would love to hear more from people who have worked in Brazil but are from a different nationality. While the Brazil HR market has come a long way there is an argument to state that it will progress further if it opens up a little more and invites in more HR people from around the world.
2. With government legislation being very different to that of the rest of the world it is incredible to see that 87% of people working in Brazil receive more than 20 days holiday, which is by far and away the highest percentage in this category anywhere in the world.
3. Manufacturing and Oil & Gas were the sectors with the highest representation in the survey. Banking & Finance was top in each other country except for China.
The data provided is obviously just a sample of people that are known to us and while we might not know everyone, some of the insights are very valuable. I’ve never looked into trends like this globally before and hope this survey shows that as a business we are truly looking to add a greater value to the global HR community.
