Editor's message: With the level of pay increases falling but the cost of living rising, inflation is now higher than the increase in wages. Our latest analysis looks at the pattern of pay settlements, and 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 2016 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 - our latest findings detail pay award forecasts through to the end of August 2017.
In addition, we offer practical guidance and solutions in our How to guides.
Our data and benchmarking services also extend beyond pay to encompass all aspects of HR and employment policy and practice.
