Sub-Saharan Africa executive compensation particularities, “Fin24.com” - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Johannesburg, South Africa – “In the Sub-Saharan Africa talent market, job titles and therefore pay scales mean very little – i.e. a Vice President in one country could be a senior manager or a Director in another. Typically companies have simply been grateful that they can get talent to relocate to some of the countries where they operate in subsidiaries, so now they find themselves with confused pay scales. They find their calculations to be driven by what the markets dictate rather than what their organic pay scale specifies for corresponding positions elsewhere in the world,” explains Martin Pike, Managing Director of Sub-Saharan Africa region at Pedersen & Partners.

Beijing, China – It could almost have been planned that way. As representatives gathered in Paris at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, a smoggy haze floated over the Chinese capital, 22 times higher than the World Health Organisation’s limit, and forcing China to issue its first red alert, closing schools and construction sites and limiting traffic.
