Information Technology had a very fast growth during last few years

Karachi, July 06, 2012 (PPI-OT): The IT Industry in Pakistan has had a very fast paced period of growth for the last few years. Ten IT companies made the list of Harvard’s 25 fastest growing companies in Pakistan. Pakistani IT companies have won both national and international recognition and acclaim.

The driving force behind the IT industry, like any other industry, is talent working in the sector. Companies desire the best talent, both to hire and to retain. Fair compensation and benefits rank very highly for any employee who wishes to work for, and continue to grow, in any company. Further, the rate of compensation, promotions and job requirements change very rapidly in the IT Industry, making a regular IT Salary Survey a significant tool for companies wishing to hire and retain the best talent in the industry

This P@SHA IT Salary Survey is the second survey conducted by P@SHA for the IT Industry, following the earlier survey conducted in 2008. This survey aims to benchmark salaries, benefits and promotion and increment timelines for employees working in the IT Industry in Pakistan.

The 2012 edition of the P@SHA Salary Survey is the most comprehensive research that P@SHA has conducted to date in this field. This report includes two types of employee roles: core-IT roles such as Programmers, QA Managers, Team Leads etc., as well as non-IT roles for employees in IT companies such as Finance Managers, HR Managers as well as senior IT Management. We hope that this comprehensive approach will enable companies to benchmark the salaries and growth timelines for a majority of their employee roles effectively.

As of this year, P@SHA will be publishing an Annual Salary Survey.

For P@SHA members, the cost of purchasing this report is PKR 5,000. For non members, the cost of the report is PKR 15,000. To purchase this report, please contact P@SHA at nabeel@pasha.org.pk. The Survey is being made available free of cost to all participating companies.
