What problems does salary and benefits benchmarking solve?

Companies often come to us wondering whether their salary and compensation packages are in line with those offered by similar organisations. Few employers have access to data tailored specifically to their business; this can be an invaluable guide to combat potential issues affecting overall business success, including:

Talent lost to competitors

Without the ability to see and compare your market position, you risk failing to appeal to the best candidates. Your competitors could be knowingly offering preferable benefits or higher salaries. 

Poor use of time

Trawling through reports for meaningful results can be time consuming. Salary Surveys alone do not always provide the specific data you need to make the most accurately bespoke job offerings.

Financial penalties

Some organisations face regulatory pressures to ensure employees are paid market value. Involvement in anti-competitive behaviour, e.g. overpaying talent, could result in substantial fines.

What are the key benefits of salary and benefits benchmarking?

Bridge the pay gaps in your organisation, with data that's relevant and non-biased. Using a combination of our data, publicly available insights and the knowledge of our experts, we build bespoke overviews that help you to:

Increase retention rates

With market salaries constantly evolving, it’s important to stay ahead of the game and ensure your employees feel like they are being treated fairly now and in the future.

Attract a wider talent pool 

By offering the best possible salary, along with the most preferable benefits, you will better your chances of attracting and sourcing the desired candidate. 

Make reliable decisions

Getting an impartially accurate idea of salary will help you to make informed and effective remuneration decisions, while at the same time account for variations that need to be considered.
