The article focuses on the decline in traditional annual pay rises, according to a research by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. Almost half of organisations no longer award employees an across-the-board annual rise or cost-of-living adjustment, the Reward management 2008 survey has revealed. Manufacturing, production and private-sector firms were the least likely to provide such a pay rise. An increasingly popular alternative is to allocate pay budgets to departmental heads to distribute among staff based on their contribution.
