Remuneration benchmarking tells you how much to pay your executive and non-executive directors (NEDs)

Remuneration benchmarking is the process of gathering market data and analysis to assess the quantum and mix of remuneration elements that constitute a market competitive total remuneration package for a role, based on organisation size, sector, role design and organisation design. GRG is among the most frequently used providers of non-executive director fee and top executive director salary benchmarking data and advice in Australia, offering deep analysis based on the largest remuneration benchmarking database of ASX market data. We assist both listed and unlisted companies (from start-up through to ASX 50) to make competitive, consistent and defensible pay and reward decisions.

When you use GRG for pay benchmarking, you will have access to a market leading KMP remuneration database which allows us to offer you customised remuneration benchmarking depending on your particular needs. If you only need data, you may pick a peer group of companies to obtain both statistics and transparent “line-by-line” source data. Alternatively, you may need independent advice whereby our experienced team work with you to give tailored insights and clear recommendation based on custom market modelling and role relationship assessments.

We take the time to understand your business

The underlying principle of GRG’s approach to executive remuneration benchmarking is to develop a trusted advisor role with our clients. To this end GRG offers to invest in a deep understanding of the client’s circumstances and needs as they relate to remuneration matters.

Quality data

GRG is a leading Australian KMP remuneration data provider, maintaining Australia’s largest KMP remuneration database. Our degree-qualified analysts extract and analyse high-quality data, supported by experienced remuneration consultants. Our consistent valuation methodology ensures the best possible insights to our clients.

Comparator group

Select a group of companies against which you’d like to make your comparisons. GRG can assist you with selecting the best aligned companies so you gain strategic insight into competitive board and executive remuneration.

Unique methodology

Sometimes, even a larger market benchmarking peer group (which we call a comparator group) fails to produce robust statistics for less common executive roles. In that case we may apply several unique methodologies at no additional cost to ensure that our clients get a useful reference point for all roles.

More than just data

At GRG, benchmarking is more than just quality data and analysis. Our customised executive remuneration benchmarking service goes to the next step, providing our clients with advice and recommendations supported by evidence, modelling and explanations.
