Russians are ready to work harder if their employers increase their pay by 50%-100%, experts from the NAFI Analytical Center reported.
The study found that only 40% of Russians would work harder with a double increase in their compensation package, while a 10%–40% rise will not motivate more than 5% to 30% of the workforce, RBC writes. Another 18% of respondents said they are working as hard as they can anyway, and are not going to put in more effort under any circumstances. Most of these people are from Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Interestingly, the majority of Russians, 54%, said they did not expect an increase in their incomes this year, while 29% believe employers will give them a rise.
