Pay – Here’s What We Can Do:

  • Pay structure: Implement, improve, develop or review a pay structure. Suggest a pay structure that is fair and reasonable, both within the company and compared to the general market
  • Assess jobs using point factor analysis
  • Review or create job descriptions
  • Salary management policy: Implement, improve, develop or review a salary management policy

Salary management policies cover the use of the pay structure and show management how to use it. Among other things, the policy describes how salary is paid at hiring, salary progression and how to manage employees who have reached the maximum salary.

  • Salary surveys – market data

Once jobs have been identified for a salary survey, we can determine whether a field survey is the best option or whether a documented survey is possible. A documented survey provides a look at the market based on purchased surveys and market data held by Proxima Centauri. When possible, these factors are studied: Company size (number of employees), sales revenue, geographic location, sector Field surveys provide fairly thorough information about the general payment practices of competitors in the target market. They can accurately target criteria to identify companies to be contacted and used for comparison. Field surveys can collect more detailed information (e.g. social benefits, schedule, variable pay, leave).
