The 2016 Botswana Total Remuneration Survey (TRS) by Mercer, a global human resource consulting firm, will aid local companies in comprehensive information on compensation and benefits of employees around the globe.
Carolina Vorster, Consultant of Mercer South Africa says the survey will entail among others, market policies and practices reports that show how other companies remunerate their employees, pension benefits and whether there is a guarantee of the 13th cheque in the organisation.
According to Vorster, so far 24 companies have registered for the survey, an improvement from last year’s 14 companies. Local companies include, Barclays Bank of Botswana, Old Mutual and Atlas Copco Botswana.
The survey is expected to assist companies in the same sector to learn and compare how their employees are graded and paid.
“We urge companies to take part in the survey, as it will benefit them and we guarantee confidentiality as we have legal agreements that we will both sign to protect you,” Vorster says. Companies can download registration forms, complete the questionnaire and submit it through email before June 24, 2016.
The survey is free. Mercer Consultants will validate the data received from companies and hold meetings with individual companies to get to know more about them. The publication of results is expected in September this year, where participants will be given feedback and presentations.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
