Firms expect to give their workers a pay rise of 2.5% next year, although some are predicting a wage freeze, according to a study.

A survey of 240 private sector organisations by analysts XpertHR showed that almost two-thirds believed their 2014 pay awards would be the same as this year, suggesting a "subdued" picture.
