Health Insurance Industry Remuneration Survey
Completely on-line:
Survey Data Collection, Report Presentation, Job Evaluation

See example: Health Insurance Survey

The survey is produced in April and October each year and covers over 40 roles ranging from lower level positions, for example Accounts Clerk, through to Chief Executive Officer (see positions surveyed). All positions surveyed are matched to job descriptions and are job evaluated. Accordingly, the analysis provided is on a job description match, and a job evaluated basis. Job points are based on the NRC job evaluation system Jobscore.

Data collection, delivery of the survey results, and the job evaluation system are all on-line. Effectively, there is no need for the exchange of paper or any type of computer-readable file between participants in the survey and the NRC.

For jobs that are common to all industries, for example those in Finance, Administration, Human Resources, Information Services, etc, the NRC’s all-industries databases are used to provide additional salary comparisons with the general Australian market.

Participants receive a Contributor Report following each update of the survey. This Report focuses on the formulation of salary policy specific to the participant organisation. It provides an analysis for each job for which the participant contributes data, including a comparison of the salary package for each incumbent against that of similar jobs in the industry, and as appropriate, with jobs across all industries.

A detailed Survey Report is also produced, giving results for all jobs surveyed together with salary movement and other analyses.
