Pay Planning for 2022


The pandemic and its economic effects have continued to impact pay and reward decisions. This report details the findings from IDR’s latest research on pay planning for 2022 and explores how employers have shaped their pay and reward in 2021, as well as looking at prospects for the coming year. The report contains detailed findings from IDR’s pay planning study and is a valuable resource for reward practitioners when it comes to planning for pay.

The survey was conducted in the summer of 2021 and received responses from 83 organisations, together employing nearly a million workers. Participants were asked about their experience of pay-setting during 2021 as well as questions on their intentions and strategies for the year ahead. The report provides analysis and commentary on these topics, as well as the results from a series of questions that were posed on recruitment, retention and staffing.

The report also includes the latest intelligence from IDR on pay awards, inflation and key labour market statistics.
