  • A comprehensive report covering reward elements such as base pay, bonus, guaranteed allowances, total cash and total remuneration, benefits and broader market intelligence.
  • The survey results include breakdowns by function and region.
  • Sharing of best practice and thought leadership on reward and related topics.
  • A post-survey event providing an opportunity for survey participants to share information, review trends and in-depth analysis of survey results, and to discuss ‘hot skills’ areas and current sector issues.
  • An ongoing network of support, information and referral for reward professionals in the survey group and QCG’s wider network in the sector.
