Although many of the staff groups under the remit of the public-sector pay review bodies have received a pay award in 2015/16, for salaried staff in the NHS in England, Wales and Northern Ireland the review bodies played no part in the decision.
Pay rises are on the cards in nine organisations in 10 over the next 12 months but, at an expected median rate of 2%, employees are likely to be underwhelmed by the level of the awards, according to our latest research.
Latest research from XpertHR investigates the diverse ways in which competencies - that is, the skills, knowledge and behaviours possessed by employees - may be used to help drive high levels of organisational performance.
The latest XpertHR research examines the extent to which performance-related pay schemes are judged to be succeeding in practice, and looks at some of the problems encountered by organisations using this reward strategy.
