Pay and benefits

Sheila Attwood Editor's message: The difference in pay settlement levels in the public and private sectors is highlighted in the data for April pay awards. Pay trends June 2016: pay uncertainty remains has all the latest analysis of pay settlement trends. We also report the details of the latest pay awards monitored by XpertHR.

XpertHR collects the details of around 1,600 pay awards every year, and our round-up of pay awards in the year to the end of August 2015 demonstrates just how stable the pay setting environment is at present. We also regularly survey employers about their pay plans and forecasts to give subscribers an insight into what other employers are planning for the year ahead. In addition, we offer practical guidance and solutions in our How to guides.

For those needing to review and benchmark pay rates, XpertHR publishes a wide range of industry and occupational salary surveys, and provides easy access to inflation and other economic indicators.

Our data and benchmarking services also extend beyond pay to encompass all aspects of HR and employment policy and practice.
