Salary benchmarking by Qlearsite Pro

22 Apr 24 | Blog

Whatever kind of people leader you are – HR professional, CEO, team lead, line manager – then there’s really only one secret to doing it well. And that’s making informed decisions. You need data points you can trust, and insights that guide your actions.  

One of the metrics that really matters when it comes to leading a team is salary and cost data. That’s why we’re launching salary benchmarking and metric costs in our HR analytics platform.  

Let’s cover the basics first… 

What is salary benchmarking?  

What’s salary benchmarking? Salary benchmarking means comparing your organisation’s pay to the market rate, usually looking at specific industries and job functions. 

Why should you benchmark salaries? 

Why benchmark salary? Organisations will benchmark their salaries to make sure they’re compensating their teams fairly, understand any attrition risks, and to make it easier to have salary conversations – whether during an employee’s lifecycle, or at the recruitment stage.

Why use Qlearsite for salary benchmarking? 

There’s several ways you can approach a salary benchmarking exercise – but most of them involve manual work, a lot of time, unreliable data, and a whole heap of stress. For those reasons, your best bet is using a salary benchmarking tool that does the bulk of the work for you.  

Our platform includes salary benchmarking and costs as part of Qlearsite Pro. Here’s the salary features you can expect to see: 

 Salary benchmarks dynamically mapped to your organisation’s roles

In-app visualisations of your pay vs. benchmark, separated by role​​

Comparison of total salary costs by function, teams, & other demographics​​

Automatic calculation and tracking of absence and attrition costs

Monthly data updates reflecting trends or changes in market pricing​
