Settlements and forecasts

Every month, the latest findings for pay trends, forecasts, settlements, and more, are collected and published.

Based on data collected across organisations, the settlements and forecasts document provides a tool to review salaries.

Settlements reveals the average increase that has been applied at each level over the previous quarter and year, according to collected data. Forecasts reveals the expert predictions as to what salary increase will be applied over the coming quarter and year, based on collected data.
