Comprehensive compensation benchmarking

We have completed a large number of compensation benchmarking reports – benchmarking salaries, bonus structures, and targets from Executives down to admin staff.

Understanding competitor analytics is vital in establishing not only what your competitors are doing, but what makes your firm’s services unique. 

This then enables an appropriate remuneration strategy to be put in place that ensures you are attracting and retaining the right target market specific to your offering.

Our performance reporting and benchmarking service provides business intelligence for our clients to measure the performance of their internal remuneration landscape and compare this to the external market.

Scope decisions are yours to make:

1) The compensation and performance management (if you like) factors to include: 

  • Base salary
  • Bonuses and benefits (financial, non-financial, and alternative compensation schemes)
  • Performance compensation received
  • Performance compensation structure
