According to the report, the increases are mainly made in service and manufacturing companies in Zona Franca (Free Trade Zone).

“Due to the great dynamism that the country has had in terms of attracting foreign investment since 2000 and the corresponding demand for talent, it has caused the breakdown of some remuneration trends observed a few years ago,” said Victoria Scott, Managing Director Compensation & Benefits Consultancy of PwC Costa Rica.

Previously, according to Scott, large companies, such as multinationals, were those that offered the best levels of remuneration and benefit schemes but today medium and small companies also do so.
