Professional Services Remuneration Report (Australia)

Over the past few years, the Professional Services industry has undergone significant change. For HR managers, the convergence of traditional consulting spheres has most notably led to a broadening of the consulting talent market. Due to this change, it is critical that remuneration benchmarks reflect the current state of play. It’s also imperative that HR managers are acutely aware of remuneration trends and insights when it comes to the expanding disciplines in their firm’s advisory portfolio.

Aon’s Professional Services Remuneration Survey does just that; having been developed to provide a holistic overview on remuneration for organisations of all types and sizes across this broad industry. Helping firms to stay informed of market movements, this report ensures executives have reward strategies that meet business needs, while minimising costs. It is undoubtable that the investment in a remuneration report subscription will be repaid many times over in savings, through the optimisation of total reward spend, and of course, the retention of key talent.
