Atlus Increases Staff Salaries
Atlus plans to raise the base salary of new university graduates from 257,000 yen to 300,000 yen ($1,981 USD) and increase the annual salaries of all employees by 15 percent in April 2024. This move aims to attract global talent and retain current staff by creating a stable income environment.
Atlus will also start paying performance bonuses funded by worldwide profits from fiscal 2021. With the global recognition of its games such as Etrian Odyssey Nexus and Persona 5, Atlus plans a major revision to its compensation structure to boost game development and sales performance.
Challenges in the Gaming Industry
Unlike Atlus, many other developers have faced layoffs and studio closures due to economic challenges. It's worth noting that employee satisfaction leads to increased productivity.
