Compensation Benchmarking & Analysis Services

Are you struggling to recruit top talent? Un-competitive compensation packages may be the issue. Our compensation benchmarking process can help. Benchmarking and analysis equip you with a data-driven response based on facts using the actual market rates of specific positions. This data helps you make better-informed and more effective remuneration decisions.

Total compensation is a significant factor for retaining high quality talent, sustaining employee engagement, and building a healthy workplace culture. People are your greatest asset. With that in mind, it can be beneficial to view compensation as a business investment rather than a company expense.

Our Compensation Benchmarking & Analysis Process

We equip you with accurate information to create a compensation strategy to ensure you use compensation dollars wisely.

We then collaborate with you to understand the data and determine how to react to it within your organization.

Having a sound compensation plan, structure, and strategy will pay off significantly for your organization, both in the short and long term.

Importance of Compensation Benchmarking & Analysis

Turnover and hiring new staff are time-consuming and costly compared to retaining existing talent. Often companies underpay employees because they lack an external benchmark for competitive compensation. Your company saves money in the long term when you have a compensation structure based on current industry data.

HR Catalyst has been great to work with! We needed a full breakdown of compensation reports for our employees to make sure we offered competitive compensation for our employees.  This helped us tremendously to make the needed adjustments currently and moving forward. They were friendly, efficient and thorough to work with & we continue to reach out to them with new compensation reports needed.

Our Approach to Compensation Benchmarking & Analysis

HR Catalyst builds detailed pay analysis studies specific to your industry, geography, and company size. We then collaborate to ensure you comprehend the data. As a boutique human resources firm, we offer personalized service.
