Hi everyone
How do companies determine the salary review of their executives???
1. Whether its to be done yearly/once in two yr/3 yrs, etc??
2. What percentage of hike to be given??
3. How to determine what other companies are paying or what is the industry rate??

Hi Kaushika,
It would help the viewers to respond to your query if you can let us know what kind of Industry is your Company into. The frequency of the salary hikes and the Percentage and the Market rate differs from Industry to Industry.
Please do give some more inputs to your question you will see desired results shortly thereafter.

1.Proposed Salary increase to be given every year (financial or calander year)
2.Percentage increase depends upon the size of the company say., a Group Company or only one company. Increase depends upon the profit it makes and it has made the previous years. If it is a small group company, the increase may be given between 10 and 12% and for big group companies it may be even 20 to 25%. Most of the companies differentiate the increment criteria between departments say, Manufacturing, Marketing & Sales, etc. Generally for Marketing & Sales the increase would be more due to employee turnover.
3.Comparison within similar type of industries can be done only by compensation surveys

The compensation, increments and incentive will always depend on your financial status, market rate and your anticipated production in the coming financial year. A lots of planning and specifically job evaluation has to go behind the decision.
Hope it clears your doubt,
If it doesnt, can you please specify the exact area you want to know.

Following are the factors that determine salary hike % or amount;
1 Compensation Survey Data.
2 Inflation Rate in economy.
3 Geographical disparities/ similarity in compensation if company has multilocational operations.
4 Willingness to position company in the salary range identified thr. comp. data (Min. Average & Maximum) wherein average refers to band/ pay reference point.
5 Performance Rating patterns emerged in bell curve (based on rating scale).
6 Business affordability.

There are lot of agencies doing this kind of surveys. - McKinsy - Gallup - Mafoi Regards Bharathi

Inflation rate increases every year so you need to appraise them atleast once in a year. Regards Anil

Hi Bharathi,
We worked with Mafoi & Mercer. However I feel Mercer has got better capability in doing C & B Study and one of the reasons why they r better is becoz they have a certified job evaluation tool in place.

You need find out whether there is any c & B Survey going on in ur industry in case if yes then participate in that after discussing with management team. If not you can sponsor a survey study by seeking assistance from consultants.
For budget affordability pls. refer to the manpower budgets as to how much have u budgeted which will be 'check n balanace' mechanism during the exercise of Post Review Consequence Management Exercise.
