Guest  Feature from Sheila Attwood, Editor Pay & Benefits for XpertHR 

 

Preparing the ASR: pay benchmarking

 

Pay bargaining for 2013 is just getting underway in the private sector, with employers beginning to think about what they hope to achieve from their annual salary review - this may be based on one or more of the following: affordability; cost of living increases; internal pay differentials; or what competitors are paying.

 

This year, affordability is likely to be the biggest concern for most. But XpertHR research shows that many organisations will be hoping to make a pay increase in 2013, even if only a modest one.
