Due to COVID-19, digital transformation, eCommerce, remote access, and data protection have become even higher high priorities for many organisations, creating a highly competitive employment market for people with skills such as cyber security, robotic process engineering, agile, scrum and more. Meanwhile, travel restrictions, limited access to overseas candidates and an uncertain economic environment have made it harder to entice qualified, high performing talent from a limited pool.

In this environment, how can employers make informed decisions about remuneration and ensure they are aligned with competitors and the industry at large?

With regulatory pressures and keen interest from shareholders, executive remuneration packages are under more pressure now than ever. As a result, executive remuneration has become a key focus area for organisations. Established in 2013 and released in May and November of each year, Aon’s Executive Remuneration Survey collects, analyses and publishes remuneration benchmarks for senior executives in large organisations, with an emphasis on top 100 ASX-listed companies and large, privately held organisations with total annual revenues of approximately $1 billion. The survey represents the largest known data set of its kind in the market.

Aon’s Executive Remuneration Report combines the annual report remuneration disclosures for CEO and KMP level executives with data contributed by organisations for senior executives up to two levels below KMPs. It offers information beyond that disclosed in annual reports and offers advanced data filtering options, so you can review the information that is most valuable to your organisation, by reporting level, seniority, market caps, revenue or headcount. There are numerous ways the data can be viewed to ensure you get the insights you need. The result? Confident, informed decision making.
