Frequently Asked Questions

  • ​ Why should I use a salary guide?
    To find out what a reasonable salary is for the job and industry you are in or are thinking of moving into, use a Salary Guide to discover the average pay for someone with a similar level of experience as you and view your earning potential.​
  • What are the benefits of using a salary benchmarking guide?​
    Whether you're due a pay rise, promotion, or bonus, a Salary Guide allows you to review accurate market salary and pay averages to see how you can compare to others in your sector. Having accurate data-led salary information will help identify exactly how much you should be earning so you ca prepare to negotiate your salary in your next performance review.​
  • When is the best time to negotiate my salary?​
    Salary reviews often take place during the annual and half-year employee performance review periods. Make sure you take this into consideration and time your negotiation right.

The benchmarking process is essential for assessing and comparing pay and compensation packages in relation to the market and of those provided by competitors. Pay and compensation benchmarking can also provide significant competitor advantage, through the retention and attraction of top talent and enhancing an organisations reputation.

  • How should employers evaluate employee pay & compensation during performance reviews?​
    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 in-demand skill sets.
