Further information

How do we determine the salary benchmark?

Our salary benchmark data is powered by over 400,000 Employment Hero data points to provide a breakdown based on seniority, tenure, industry, and residential state.

It helps employer managers by telling them if an employee's salary is low/medium or high compared to the benchmark, and how confident we are in the benchmark banding.

What do the highlighted rules and alerts mean?

If the alert is orange, this means that the effective date is the same or after the cycle effective date, and that this should be resolved before the admin ends the cycle.

If an employee is highlighted as purple, this means that their recommendation is above the guidance set. If the employee is highlighted as orange, their recommendation is below the set guidance.
