Michael Bustard - Non-Exec. Director & Chairman

I found Paydata very professional and responsive to what we needed and our tight timescale. Their report was easy to read and contained relevant data which enabled our Remuneration Committee to take appropriate decisions in a timely manner. We shall most certainly use them again.

How we helped PDJ Group

The Issue

The project addressed three key challenges:


Daily rates typically paid to Non-Executive Directors not benchmarked


Not knowing the proportion of variable pay in the Senior Executive package


Not knowing the current market practice for main benefits such as cars, annual leave and pensions.

Our Solution

Paydata’s Executive Benchmarking service enables the Remuneration Committee to make informed decisions when it comes to executive reward, offering solutions tailored to their specific needs and requirements.

We are able to access data from a number of sources. We apply this data using our own approach to job matching. For Senior Executive roles our methodology examines the factors that have the greatest influence on pay.
