Salary Increase Trends
Taking pay increase and labor market data from both the Radford Trends Report and the Aon Salary Increase Surveys, our new survey combines the best of both worlds. Conducted semi-annually (a change from quarterly for users of the Radford Trends Report and annually for users of the Salary Increase Survey), this survey will give participants extensive country specific coverage of salary increase budgets and actuals for the technology and life sciences sectors as well as tech-influenced general industry companies. Additional topics covered will include: turnover, hiring plans, performance management, pay for performance effectiveness, promotion practices and more.
Short and Long-Term Incentives
Designed to be the perfect companion piece to compensation surveys, our Incentives Survey will cover both short-term and long-term incentive topics for plans offered around the world, including eligibility, recipients and plan design criteria for cash incentive plans. Other topics include: include formal bonuses, profit sharing, discretionary and sales plans, cash LTI, and equity plans including stock options, restricted stock, employee stock purchase plans and more. This survey will be published semi-annually, with a regularly updated database available for use when ordering a Custom/Peer Report.
New Grad/Base Salary
In today's hot labor market, attracting employees is critically important. Whether recruiting new grads, especially those out of high demand programs, or trying to fill jobs requiring key skills, candidates have many options and are eager to prove their worth. This annual survey covers new hire pay guidelines for new college grads with a bachelor, master or doctorate degree, as well as internship candidates at different levels on their education journey. Our New Grad/Base Salary Survey will also help when forming an offer for experienced hires, with the application of tools like salary ranges, market-based pay, geo pay plans, fixed overtime, sign on bonuses, referral bonuses, on-call pay and shift differentials.
Leave and Allowance
Base salaries and incentives are only the beginning when designing effective pay programs. As companies continue to expand their global reach, it becomes more critical to understand leave and allowances policies around the world. Whether you need to relocate an employee to another country or need to hire locally, this annual survey will provide you with insight into allowances topics, including: car/auto, house, meal and other globally prevalent allowances. Leave topics include: maternity/paternity leave, annual leave, vacation/sick days, holidays, sabbaticals and other paid leave. This survey also covers company car policy and executive perquisites.
It can be argued that your company's culture might be even more important than company strategy in building employee engagement and enthusiasm. After all, employees that fit in well with the company and believe in its values will be more productive than someone who doesn't. Our annual Employee Experience Survey covers all the party-talk items that make a firm unique including: recognition, training/learning, wellness, flexibility, mobility, matching gifts, food and snacks, work environment, green policies, pet policies and more. Change in control policies and severance benefits are also covered in this survey.
With the upcoming launch of the new suite of practices surveys, the Radford Trends Report and the Radford U.S. Benefits Survey as currently constructed, will be discontinued and their data integrated into one of more of our new surveys. In addition, many of the Trends Hot Topics will now be surveyed annually in one of our new products. Survey names and topic area details remain subject to change. We will continue to provide more information about our new practices suite in the coming weeks and months. If you have any questions, please contact your survey consultant.
