Compensation Surveys

For a Total Reward Strategy

We collect, analyse, interpret and value so many informations to allow firms to elaborate a total reward strategy aiming on the one hand, at defending and sustain its competitive advantage, on the other hand, at investing on key resources for the organization.

Currently, there are so many types of compensation surveys that differ one from another for the methodology used, but they could be classified in two main broad categories:

  • Those focusing on retributive structure, well known for their “job points” based approach,
  • Those focusing on organizational position, supposed to be based on a sample of positions characterizing the organization.

Despite both pursue different objectives, we strongly believe that are valid equally as well as functional to organizational purposes.

The growing attention paid from companies to total reward policies and the necessity to differentiate through compensation make the equation ”job points or job title= payment” no more valid, so the idea of professional families has been introduced as the “ trait d’ union” between two interdependent worlds: total compensation systems and pay-for-competences ones.

Which is the survey to take part at?

As much as possible.
No survey is the best in absolute terms, but any of them may give important benchmarking informations that organizations have to interpret and use to build up their own payment system and policies in order to incentive, motivate and keep key resources.
