Benchmarking in today’s fast-changing market

In today’s ever changing talent landscape, compensation benchmarking is critical to staying competitive in the market and improving performance. It helps in making informed decisions on pay structures and individual rates of pay, and it enables companies to make better pay decisions that allow them to attract and retain top talent.  

“When you're trying to understand where you need to focus your budget, and on what jobs; getting pay right is essential to be considered by top talent, and to keep your current employees. Widespread labour shortages with high demand for specialized skills, compounded with a high inflationary environment, corporate relocations, and remote working all amplify the need for timely, accurate and trusted benchmark data,” said

Michael Anderson, Workforce Analytics, Global Career Product Leader, Mercer. “Mercer’s data will help enable HiBob’s users to confidently assess their rewards strategy more efficiently and effectively, giving them the competitive edge for talent.” 

Building a future-ready workforce

Today’s job market is more competitive than ever. There is no sign this will change anytime soon. Compensation is a major lever in attracting and retaining the high performing employees, making it a strategic differentiator. Choosing a proper pay scale that is aligned with, or superior to, your competition gives you an edge.  

Ronni Zehavi, CEO and Co-Founder of HiBob commented: “You need to anticipate your next workforce challenge, predict your labour costs, and understand how to adapt in order to compete, particularly during challenging economic times. A regularly updated, trusted global source of compensation data and workforce analytics isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a necessity for making smart business decisions and ensures your business is able to keep rewards and compensation strategies consistent across all markets.”
