We can’t make any promises, but word is your boss is planning to give you a big pay bump in 2022.

After two rough years of meager raises and even some freezes on salary increases during the pandemic, employers are planning to pony up and return to more normal annual raises, according to a recent survey from global advisory and insurance broker Willis Towers Watson.

It’s no surprise the more than 1,000 employers the company contacted this spring shared plans to grant bigger raises next year given the monumental competition for workers across industries. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics released this week showed the country has more open positions than at any other point since the department began measuring job openings in 2000.
