Compensation and Benefits

Compensation Surveys and Benchmarking

Without a competitive pay structure, companies struggle to attract and retain top talent. Staff turnover is expensive, and with remuneration typically representing one of the largest financial investments an organization will make each year, it is imperative that organizations get it right.

Compensation Surveys

Aon's reward team relies on its fact based methodology to help clients design, develop and deliver effective reward programs that establish a direct connection between the organization's goals and objectives and an employee's focus and actions.

Aon produces a variety of industry-specific remuneration surveys each year. Armed with extensive and up-to-date market data for different sectors and job families, we customize competitive pay analysis depending on the size, need, objectives and resources of your organization.

Flexible or customized solutions

Aon can assist you in your remuneration benchmarking exercise, drawing from our experience, and wealth of market data. We can conduct competitive pay analysis for executive teams, strategic job families, an individual role or for the whole organization.

Our customized approach will help you gain a clear understanding of your organization's market position and the competitiveness of employees' remuneration packages. We can identify employees in your organization who are remunerated at a rate far higher, or lower, than the market norm. If required, we can offer solutions to close any gaps related to such practices and determine the cost to company to implement these recommendations.
