Top salaries for skilled workers

Source : Statistics Belgium

In a highly competitive environment, offering decent salaries is one key to having a stable and satisfied workforce.

With an average gross salary of €4,200 per month in 2016, the chemicals, plastics and life sciences industry offers attractive remuneration rates compared with the average gross salary in manufacturing as a whole. Gross salaries are an average of 18.4% higher than in other manufacturing sectors (although the figures vary between sub-sectors). This is linked to the fact that the chemicals, plastics and life sciences industry has a higher proportion of qualified and specialised employees than other sectors.

The wage gap between men and women employed full-time in the chemicals, plastics and life science industry has been closing steadily over the past ten years, down from 15.3% in 2006 to 11.2% in 2016.
