AIIA Executive Remuneration Survey for the Information, Technology and Telecommunications Industries

The AIIA has partnered with GRG to provide its extensive and market leading Executive Remuneration Survey (ERS) at a substantial discount to AIIA members.

Pricing is aligned to AIIA membership tiers so there is the right price for your company size.

The survey is designed to directly meet the needs of remuneration committees, boards and human resources professionals by providing a fully-serviced, comprehensive survey of market remuneration practices for Australian executive and general manager roles.

Created specifically for the Australian market, GRG’s ERS combines the information disclosed in remuneration reports on executive key management personnel (KMP) remuneration with company-collected data for over 60 executive and general manager roles to provide deep, granular data on quantum and variable pay plan metrics.

GRG’s customer focus ensures data quality and completeness and a high level of user confidence in the market information.

Make informed, accurate remuneration decisions

Remuneration for your executives and general managers is a balancing act linking individual performance, market relativities and your company’s business strategy. To drive and reward desired behaviours and performance, their total remuneration packages are typically a mix of:

      •   Fixed Pay
      •   Short-term Incentive (STI) remuneration
      •   Service Vesting Equity Grants (emerging practice) and
      •   Long-term Incentive (LTI) remuneration.

With today’s intense competition for senior talent, it is critical that your company reviews both the total remuneration quantum and incentive plan/performance metrics.

GRG’s ERS provides a deep dive into fixed pay and incentive plans (including plan selection, appropriate targets and design variations) for every role, enabling you to make informed, market-driven decisions to suit your company’s circumstances and business strategies.

General management data helps you plan for your future leaders

Companies generally review senior executive remuneration practices in isolation, excluding the general management population. But this overlooks what is often a critical talent pool for a company’s future leaders. Significant turnover, lower global talent mobility, diversity and inclusion and gender targets, and capability gaps amongst existing teams are market realities forcing companies to look beyond the traditional senior management group for leadership.

GRG’s ERS provides you with access to general manager remuneration quantum and incentive plan metric data so you can carefully plan today for your leaders of tomorrow.

Predictive Remuneration Model (PRM)

GRG has developed the Predictive Remuneration Model uniquely for the Australian executive remuneration market.

For many roles at both CEO-1 and CEO-2 levels, market data is unavailable, or insufficient enough to skew results. The PRM expertly fills in these blanks by drawing on our decades of observing executive remuneration practices.

For example, we’ve seen that fixed pay for various roles is often pro rata to that of the CEO; STIs and LTIs, typically a percentage of fixed pay, tend to increase in steps that apply to many roles; and both elements are linked to company size. The PRM uses these and other market inferences to calculate indicative executive remuneration quantum and mix.

As a member of GRG’s ERS, you receive both market data and PRM outputs, equipping you with the tools and knowledge to make the most informed decisions and recommendations for consideration by boards.
