Salary benchmarking is essential for comparing pay and compensation packages offered by an employer against the market and of those offered by competitors. Pay and compensation benchmarking can provide significant competitor advantage, through the retention and attraction of top talent and enhancing an organisations reputation.
Salary benchmarking is the process of comparing salaries across the market for a particular job and providing a range and average for a particular role which can help guide an employer’s decision-making on pay or bonuses during appraisal period or when making a new hire.
In partnership with a data collection specialist, a benchmarking tool offers a fully comprehensive list of salary ranges and averages based on location, experience level and more. You can view the latest salary range and averages in the 2024 salary guide.
In a candidate led market, competition for in demand, niche skill sets is continuing to rise throughout 2022. Compare your salary offering and employee value propositions against the market to help you to attract new talent, and retain existing employees. Using a salary guide to benchmark your 2023 offerings can help keep you ahead of the competition and retain employees who will be vital for bridging future business skills gaps.
We will partner with you to assist in the decision-making process. Sometimes we will suggest a combination of contract, temp and permanent solutions on a case-by-case basis.
Contract hires are great for gap filling and ensuring business as usual specifically during seasonal periods when many permanent employees are on annual leave. Contract hires are also a great approach to 'try before you buy', to test their technical skills and team fit before offering them a permanent position.
Salary and compensation reviews often take place during the annual and half-year employee performance reviews. In tangent with the employee performance scoring, you can use a salary benchmarking tool to inform the pay and compensation review process. The tool also gives good insight into market trends and in-demand skill sets. So, use performance reviews to see where the employee fits relative to the external jobs market and avoid losing in-demand talent through effective pay and compensation strategies.
"Although there will be movement in baseline salaries and day rates, candidates should fully evaluate compensation and benefits packages when considering their next career step."
