    We have been watching top locations where companies send their key talent - view our interactive Goods & Services Inflation Tracker to see how much inflation these locations are experiencing!

    The locations topping the list in this current quarter are:

    • Brazil (13.3%)
    • United Kingdom (12.3%)
    • Mexico (10.5%) 

    ....a far cry from the inflation levels they were at for goods & services two years ago!  Japan consistently remains at the bottom of the list, but even there the inflation levels are starting to creep up.



    Who is Feeling the Effects of Inflation?

    International Assignees

    With inflation all over the headlines, are you fielding questions from your assignees regarding their COLA calculations (Cost of Living Allowance) -- in these locations or elsewhere? AIRINC's COLA Change Report can help you with those conversations. It is a transparent personalized report that reflects changes in an assignee’s specific COLA and visually explains the reasons behind the change.


    Employee Salaries

    As a compensation professional, understanding how inflation is impacting your employees’ pay is critical, especially since inflation’s impact on salary varies by multiple factors, from geography to where the individual falls on the income spectrum. Our analysis and data on income distribution shows that inflation is impacting lower-level employees the most.  

    AIRINC’s Inflation Impact Analysis provides you with the data you need to make an informed decision on how much to adjust salaries or when to provide a one-time inflation payment.
