ABSTRACT

The main purpose of the fourth edition of the Loonwijzer – Monsterboard Wage Index report is to describe some of the key characteristics of the workforce in ten selected sectors of the Dutch labor market. In the first chapter, we study these ten following sectors: (i)       Agriculture, forestry, fishing, (ii)     Construction, technical consultancy, (iii)    Education, research, (iv)    Financial services, banking, insurance, (v)     Healthcare, caring services, social work,  (vi)    Hospitality, catering, tourism, (vii)    Manufacturing, (viii)   ICT services, (ix)    Legal and market consultancy, business activities, (x)     Transport, logistics. Like in the previous reports, in the Legal and market consultancy, business activities sector we also define the Marketing and communication sub-sector, and study key developments in this sub-sector as well.

This Wage Index report focuses on the Dutch labour market, but for certain figures, where the data intake is sufficient, a comparison of Dutch figures with other major European countries is also included. The sample includes observations from the last two calendar years, 2014 and 2015, and most of the tables and graphs presented in this report provide a year-to-year comparison of the key figures from 2014 and 2015.
