The most comprehensive guide to compensation and benefits practices in the market

Remuneration is moving toward greater data insights, smarter incentive programs, and more targeted benefits. Use your organisations remuneration data to stay ahead of new trends!

Salaries are a little like Australia’s housing market. Understanding that there are markets within markets is essential to accurately forecast remuneration within your industry, profession, and organisation.

Mercer's annual Total Remuneration Survey (TRS) is available to purchase! Reporting on over 200,000 incumbents from 754 Australian organisations from a broad spectrum of industries.  Access market data for cross-industry jobs and up-to-date information on market pay rates across a broad range of professions. Remember, if you want the participant rate, you can purchase now and participate later in the year.

Use your organisations remuneration data to stay ahead of new trends:

  • Tailor an analysis of remuneration trends specific to your desired job function or comparator.
  • Gain insight on the value of your total reward packages as you compare them against those of other specific market-competitive organisations.
  • Access to survey overview including market pay trends relative to prior years and a summary of all economic, political, and labour trends in the country.
  • Access to market data providing local insight for over 3,000 positions to help you determine which jobs are more competitive within the market.
