An IDR customer case study

Challenge: A company in the financial services industry faced recruitment issues for some key roles and wanted to know how competitive their pay offering was. Due to cost pressures arising from the pandemic and its associated downturn, they did not want to spend a huge amount on consultancy services and so had arranged for some capacity within their HR department to form an internal project team.

Solution: IDR recommend that the company subscribe to IDR’s online salary benchmarking software ‘Pay Benchmarker’ to enable them to look up pay for many of the core jobs within the business. These jobs include HR, finance, sales, marketing, communications, IT, management and administrative positions. The tool enabled the project team to check each of their salaries against the pay data in Pay Benchmarker. Salary data in Pay Benchmarker can be filtered by job size, sector and region, enabling the company to compare like with like.
