Salary benchmarking is the process of comparing salaries across the market for a particular job and providing a range and average for a particular role which can help guide employees looking to negotiate a higher salary with their employer at annual and half-year review periods.
Whether you're due a pay rise, promotion, or bonus, a Salary Calculator allows you to review accurate market salary and pay averages to see how you compare to others in your sector. Having accurate data-led salary information will help identify exactly how much you should be earning so you can prepare to negotiate your salary in your next performance review.
Salary reviews often take place during the annual and half-year employee performance review periods. Make sure you take this into consideration and time your negotiation right. If the annual pay review is in January, and you call the meeting for February, you’re likely to have missed the boat. In such a case, November would be the most suitable time here.
The key to a successful negotiation is being prepared for the discussion before it occurs by having a good idea what you are worth and why. Find out how much employees carrying out similar roles are paid. The key is to demonstrate your views with good examples of similar jobs both from inside and outside the firm. You can do this by benchmarking your salary against salary surveys in your sector.
Ireland Hiring Market Update
"We have witnessed, not only an upsurge in new job creation but also a large increase in roles to be backfilled as a result of candidates changing jobs in 2021- there was little to no movement over the first year of the pandemic and market confidence was at an all time low. This changed rapidly in 2021, leading to demand outstripping supply, and consequently we have seen salaries increase across the board. Staff retention has become a key priority for companies in what is now an extremely candidate driven market".
Louise Campbell – Managing Director, Ireland
