What is Salary Benchmarking?

Salary benchmarking, also known as ‘compensation benchmarking’ is an in-depth investigation of the true market value of a given role.

Opposed to a basic salary survey, which will provide average salaries based on only a select few metrics, salary benchmarking delivers far more detail and takes into account a range of factors which have a bearing on an individual’s salary package, including their location, education level, market sector, company size and experience level.

The information gathered in every benchmarking process is bespoke to an individual client’s needs. The idea is that by analysing the market and your competitors, you can identify and establish a reliable set of benchmarks against which you can set your own salary offerings. This will allow you to not only compete for the best talent, but do so without overpaying.

Why do I need salary benchmarking?

An accurate and efficient salary benchmarking service can be highly valuable. It allows hiring managers to make an informed decision based on verifiable and unbiased information.

In order to recruit and retain the most capable individuals in the industry, it’s imperative to ensure they receive a salary package that compensates them for their experience, qualifications and capabilities.

By undervaluing existing employees, you run the risk of losing them to competitors, while offering below market value when recruiting will all but guarantee you missing out on the best available talent.

Due to these challenges, we have found an increased demand for our in-depth salary benchmarking services.
