Reward Surveys

The purpose of purchasing a Reward System is to compare and set pay levels in your organisation against a relevant comparator group, in the market in which you compete for skills. The mix of both guaranteed and variable pay should promote attraction and retention of superior talent.

The information obtained is typically used for the following:

  • To obtain relevant, accurate, representative data on levels of pay and benefits for specific jobs/levels in the organisation;
  • To adjust the pay levels of employees in response to changing market conditions;
  • To analyse pay-related problems;
  • To set the pay mix (guaranteed vs. variable);
  • To offer appropriate starting rates;
  • To design and modify salary structures and pay scales;
  • To mitigate legislative risk;
  • To determine acceptable rates of salary progression; and
  • To provide guidance on pay review decisions and well as salary levels of individual employees.

the journey

The high-level process flow of the process we follow to implement RewardExpert can be summarised as follows:

Send data pack

A data pack is sent to you for completion. This pack includes a set of job matching guidelines, a data input sheet and a questionnaire.

Job matching & data validation

This is one of the most important components of the process – inaccurate job matching yields benchmarks that are neither accurate nor reflective of the market. In addition, it contaminates current data in our database. As such, we utilise using our rigorous O-R-G-N© methodology. This methodology is based on 4 key components – (O)rganisational Metrics, (R)eporting lines, (G)rade, (N)arrative). Skilled Emergence Growth staff are available to assist with this process, should it be required. Once the job matching process is complete, the pay data provided is validated. This process includes testing the data against norms in the market and a series of data validation steps. Any anomalies are queried and resolved before upload into the system.

Data upload

The matched and validated data is then uploaded into the RewardExpert database.

Provide detailed reports

A full set of organisation wide reports is given to you. These reports are invaluable for making defensible pay decisions for your employees. The reports include the following:

  1. Job matching confirmation
  2. Benchmarks for all roles in your organisation
  3. Compa ratio & cost to move analysis
  4. Pay by grade

Assign logon credentials

We will allocate usernames & passwords to all individuals that require access to the system, according to the access level required by the organisation.

Facilitate training

After confirmation of the timing, logistics & venue, we will facilitate training on the system. It si ossible to conduct the training via Skype or telephonically.

Provide ongoing support

Emergence Growth will provide unlimited telephonic support on utilisation of the system. This support is limited to office hours, 08h00 – 17h00, Monday to Friday.
