Male and female top earners

Male and female top earners are derived by selecting the 0.2 percent highest-paying employee jobs in terms of gross annual salary. Gross annual salary includes, aside from basic salary, the special remunerations such as holiday allowance, thirteenth month and bonuses. Employers’ social security contributions such as the employer’s portion of the pension contributions are excluded from the calculation. Organisations with fewer than 500 employees are not taken into account in this study.
