"CMAs earn 50% more in salary & 41% more in total compensation than non-CMAs."
Two years ago, IMA® conducted the first salary survey of its members in the Middle East. Since then, many parts of the region have been rocked by political and social turmoil as well as a global recession.
What impact did these events have on the compensation of those members in the region? To find out, IMA resurveyed them. At the beginning of this year, they sent the survey to 7,559 members. IMA received 693 responses, and, of these, 503 provided salary information so were usable for analysis.
Though salary is important, it typically is only one part of an employee’s total compensation package and only one factor influencing an employee’s job satisfaction. With this mind, IMA enlarged the scope of the study to include an examination of the various fringe benefits survey respondents receive, respondents’ overall job satisfaction, and their plans for changing jobs. Please see attached report for full details.
