SEGA has joined Nintendo in offering its staff a pay rise after the Japanese prime minister, Fumio Kishida, called for technology companies to increase wages across the board in an effort to gain more staff from overseas. SEGA will now be offering its employees a 30% pay rise which will go into effect from 1st July, 2023. However, it should be noted that newly-recruited graduates can expect an uplift of 35%.
“[This will] further stabilise employee income and create a more comfortable working environment, as well as further strengthen its global competitiveness. We are working to reform our various personnel systems so that employees can maximise their respective potential in a comfortable working environment.”
“We will continue to invest in human resource education, including not only the development of a compensation system that treats employees according to their roles and contributions, but also the expansion of measures to support working styles for each and every employee to live their own lives. We will continue our efforts to realise a system that allows our employees to grow while realising diverse work styles, and to provide further experiences that move the heart globally.”
Everyone at Nintendo deserves to be respected ☺️
Everyone at Nintendo deserves .. A cookie!
Ol’ SEGA Sammy can barely afford it.
Wouldnt it be a pay raise and not a pay rise?
You nearly gave me a heart attack when you said “SEGA joins Nintendo”. I thought it was game over.
