Paydata conducts a specialist Salary Survey covering key general industry roles. This provides companies with valuable, accurate and specific external market information to inform reward decisions, much of which is not available anywhere else.

What is the Support Services Survey?

Our Support Services Survey sources around 50 core roles that most organisations employ, providing key insights into the reward practices for these roles. If you require information for more specialist roles, then our industry salary surveys or ad hoc benchmarking services are better suited to your needs as alternative sources of market data.

Pay benchmarking your support roles

Our Support Services Survey database holds current pay and bonus market data for key general industry roles at different levels of seniority up to senior professional / middle management – for example HR Advisor, Qualified Accountant, etc.

Benefits of the Support Services Survey

Benchmark your key support roles

We largely directly-source payroll data, which gives us access to a very wide range of roles and data to analyse. Our Support Services Survey for contributing organisations covers around 50 key support/generic roles.

Compare with relevant employers

Benchmark your roles to over 150 participating organisations from a wide range of industry sectors, some of whom only contribute to Paydata’s survey.

Access market intelligence

Our survey database is kept up-to-date all year round, enabling contributing organisations to draw from the latest market data throughout their annual subscription, whenever required. This means that the latest data can be used to inform pay and benefits decisions.

Benchmark specific locations

Our survey database can be analysed at a national, regional and local (postal area) level, reflecting the wider commute-to-work area that many of these roles are recruited from, rather than just the specific industry.

Flexible data collection

To minimise contributing organisations' time and resources, data submission can be via either a questionnaire, proforma or payroll download (only non-personal data is collected).

Receive clear and easy to interpret survey reports

Reports may be personalised to each contributor, clearly illustrating how their pay compares to the wider market's pay.

  • Support Services Survey membership costs £945 plus VAT for a 12-month subscription to the survey.

Additional benchmarking support: in addition to receiving benchmark data, contributing organisations can request a number of add-on services such as pay scales modelling or an equal pay audit.
