The increases for chief executives at FTSE 100 companies were more than double those gained by other employees.

On average, chief executives earn a package of some £2m a year.

A 7.8% increase was also three times the rate of inflation though it was slightly lower than the 8.4% rise seen in the previous year.

Calvin Jackson, partner at Watson Wyatt, who carried out the survey, said the extent to which senior pay was holding up was a surprise.

‘One would have expected a much sharper decline. There has been true resilience when you think how tough it has been,’ he told the Financial Times newspaper.
