Trending functionality allows up to a 5-year historical analysis of pay elements for key jobs and changes in workforce composition.

Trend analysis - benefits for your organization

Workforce planning

How is the workforce composition of technology companies changing? Is our corporate goal of transitioning R&D staff to more affordable locations being realized? Has our average pay globally decreased as a result?

"Talent Traction", turnover & hiring

Has our strategy to tailor our compensation to better retain talent in key roles resulted in decreased turnover in the years since these programs have been implemented? Are our hiring vs. turnover rates changing in a predictable way that supports our headcount targets? How does our pace of attracting and retaining talent compare with that of our peers?

Effectiveness of diversity programs

Has female representation changed in various roles/jobs in locations across the globe? Is the wage gap closing in our organization on a - job by job and country by country basis? How effective have our diversity programs been relative to those of our peers?

Age/generational analysis

Are there pockets in our population where a significant number of staff are trending closer to retirement age? Given that our management staff continues to of comprise much younger employees as compared to the market, do we have enough experience in our management ranks to lead the company effectively?

Participation requirements

Our rich database comes from our requirement of collecting a full census of your workforce. Subscribers provide a typical survey data submission, for ALL employees; not just those in benchmark jobs. This allows us to report workforce metrics as a "% of total headcount" and "% of total payroll". It also ensures a more complete and valid view of the market, as participants can't arbitrarily exclude certain employees from the submission. We also collect data elements designed to give you additional insights as part of your competitive analysis (e.g. gender, top performers, promotion, tenure, age, turnover etc.).
