The NRC is a leading, independent, Australian provider of salary information and job evaluation services. Our salary database was established in 1972 and has been continuously maintained. As well as our all-industries job evaluated and position description matched surveys we conduct or process some of Australia's largest industry surveys. Our job evaluation system Jobscore is widely used to establish pay structures and manage pay policy.

All our surveys are internet based and secure password protected, including for the collection of data (together with salary package calculation routines) and the delivery of results. Results include: (a) comprehensive salary package details for all jobs surveyed, (b) performance appraisal-linked salary policy formulation guidelines, based on current market data, (c) salary movements and forecasts, (d) comprehensive consumer price movements together with forecasts, and (d) National and State average weekly earnings data.
