Editor's message: In setting pay rates for their employees, organisations will need to balance their ability to pay with the salaries being offered for similar roles elsewhere.
Salary surveys allow employers to benchmark their employees' pay against the salaries and other elements of reward on offer in a range of other organisations. Cendex from XpertHR offers reward data on over one million UK employees across 25 different function groups, all located in a single platform, providing access to the most comprehensive reward data. Find out how to subscribe and take part if you are not already a participant.
When setting pay rates, you will also want to take account of recent pay settlements (see Pay and benefits > Pay levels and awards > Pay awards/rises).
