Job Grading – simple and accurate, every time!
There is no one simple answer to making job evaluation easy, as it is a complex process that involves analysing and comparing various roles within an organisation to determine their relative worth.
The Results: Increases & Reward Trends Survey
Salary Increases are important… to everyone! Shareholders, RemCo’s and employees. We’ve run the survey covering those organisations planning on giving increases in the next few months and the results are in!
What To Look for in a Good Salary Survey?
The purpose of Salary Benchmarking (salary survey) is to compare the pay levels within your organisation against a relevant comparator group.
Why Job Evaluation and Compensation Management Matter?
Job Evaluationand Compensation Management – Job Evaluation is a method of comparing different jobs to ensure that all staff are graded fairly and equitably – when considering each job in relation to others in the organisation – and equally with other staff undertaking similar jobs or jobs of equal value.

COVID19 Remunerations Practices Survey
With the lockdown being extended, organisations are having to take remuneration decisions based on data that they don’t yet have. How organisations respond to this environment will likely shape the world of work for years to come.
It’s no secret that we are living in a time of unparalleled historical comparison! It’s not as exciting as it sounds… Organisations are taking remuneration decisions based on data that they don’t yet have.
The world of work as we know it has changed for the forseeable future! As you are aware, the status surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is evolving on a daily basis.
March is here… already! Thankfully, the budget speech offered a bit of tax relief for most, and the workload is ever increasing! Fortunately we still have a whole bunch of chocolates left over from Valentines day for those “will the work ever end” days.
January is behind us already – it always feels like the longest month of the year! And February has an extra day this year too, so we can get even more done. We’ve hit the ground running, and it looks like its going to be an excellent year, filled with success 🙂
Welcome to 2020! We hope you are well rested and ready for the year ahead. We’ve been busy already – the holidays feel like they were 3 months ago!
