In 2015, a regional civil service employee receives on average a net monthly wage of €1,891 in full-time equivalent; this average figure takes into account all employees in all jobs and categories, whether they are civil servants or not. Between 2014 and 2015, the average net wage rises by 0.8% in constant euros; excluding those on subsidised contracts, it rises by 1.0%.

The average net wage of civil servants in the regional public service (who account for almost 80% of the workforce in full-time equivalent) increases by 1.0%. This increase is driven by that in the average wage of category C workers, following revisions of their grading scale. It is also due to the structural improvement in the qualifications of civil service workers across the board. For non-civil servants, excluding those on subsidised contracts, the average net wage rises by 0.8%. However, as a consequence of the growing number of workers on subsidised contracts, the average net wage of all non-civil servants is stable.

Wage disparities in the regional civil service remain virtually the same in 2015. Women's take-home pay is still, on average, 9.3% lower than that of men. However, with identical characteristics, the gap narrows to 4.6%.

In 2014 and 2015, employees working all year for the same employer, with the same work quota — i.e. almost two out of three employees in the regional civil service — see their average net wage increase by 1.7 % in constant euros. This reflects their increasing seniority and their career progression.
