Editor's message: The pay and benefits offered by an employer will be one of the key factors employees consider when looking for work. In turn, an organisation's payroll is likely to be its biggest expense. It is therefore vitally important that employers plan their pay and benefits offer carefully.
For organisations 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.
XpertHR also collects and analyses pay settlement data, and our latest analysis looks at how prevalent pay freezes are among organisations' pay reviews. In addition, we 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 survey of pay forecasts for 2021 reports that employers expect wage growth to remain depressed in the year ahead.
