Managers salaries rose on average nearly 10 per cent in the year July 1984-July 1985 against an inflation rate of 6.9 percent and an average earnings increase for the whole economy of 8.8 percent and for manufacturing industries of 9.6 percent in the same period. Increases varied in different industries covering an average of 11 percent in electrical and electronic engineering to 7.9 percent in metal manufacture. These figures are included in the latest, 24th annual Inbucon Executive Salary Survey published by Inbucon Management Consultants Ltd. The average increase was around 10 percent but there were wide variations for individuals. Out of a matched sample of 5,535 executives, 507 had a gross increase of less than 5 percent, 3127, 57 per cent had an increase of between 5 and 10 percent. The survey shows that some industries are generally higher payers than others. The typical executive reflected in this survey is aged 45 and has been in his present job for 6 years and in his present company for 13 years.
