In today’s competitive environment, aligning productivity and performance is critical in determining an optimum compensation methodology and framework.
To be able to compete or retain talent, you not only need to acutely understand your position from a remuneration standpoint, but equally your perception in the relevant talent markets and the opportunities or threats you may be unaware of.
HC’s truly unique positioning within the global energy and commodities sector not only enables us to provide granular detail around base salary and bonus ranges, but more importantly an often lacking additional layer of market context to help interpret the data through the correct lens.
The data points we can provide:
- Base salary benchmarking
- Annual variable compensation (annual total of pay, short or long term incentives, sales incentives, profit sharing)
- Bonus mechanisms and methodologies
The questions we can answer:
- How is your employer brand perceived in the market?
- How do various incentive plans influence behaviours and culture?
- How are bonus pools determined and distributed across an organisation?
- How does compensation impact value creation?
- Where is your key-person risk based on current talent supply/demand?
How we source and deliver our data
Contrary to most prominent compensation data vendors, HC does not rely on company participation. We source, cleanse and anonymise anecdotal market intelligence and hard compensation data that we receive directly from the talent communities within our global network.
To ensure that the data cannot be reverse engineered, HC only provides data points where data density permits, and no individual data point represents more than 25% of any statistic. Depending on preference, HC can cut the data by market median, including P25 and P75 information, in addition to gross/net compensation comparisons between regional hubs.
