Koei Tecmo says it’s planning to introduce an average 23 percent increase in base salaries, which will see employees taking home an extra 73,000 yen each month on an average.
Furthermore, Koei Tecmo is also increasing the monthly starting salaries for new graduates by 56,000 yen to 290,000 yen. Additionally, apart from the regular performance bonus, the company said it will introduce a new special bonus to employees for early achievement of its mid-term management plan.
