Salary and Reward Benchmarking 

Evidence-Based Decision Making

In order that business leaders create competitive and affordable salary and reward packages, we provide role specific data and insights which highlight trends at skill, sector, geography and company level providing you with more relevant information than generic salary survey reports.

Our blend of macro and micro data analysis enables you to benchmark more effectively through the utilisation of evidence-based insight relative to your company and the skills you employ.

Research Methodology

Research Methodology

Telephone Based Research

Cogito will present the salary and reward benchmarking report, which will include all relevant remuneration information where available. Market remuneration analysis including averages by role, distributions of salaries and a breakdown of your market position and competitiveness by percentile. This detailed analysis allows you to better understand how your proposition, in terms of pay, fits within candidate expectations and other employers offerings. Our findings are then presented back in an interactive dashboard and pdf report.

Desk Based Research

Cogito’s research team will collate relevant remuneration data from previously completed projects and industry contacts. This primary data will then be combined with open-source data points, including other published salary surveys and data collected from industry bodies. These data points are then combined and weighted towards the most trustworthy and relevant sources.

As we work through the desk-based research, we will also conduct calls on spotlighted roles and those that may have flagged some nuances.
