The African Survey – Grade Based Local in Country and Expatriate Data

The Africa survey has proven to be an invaluable tool for human resource professionals tasked with Reward Management in Africa. It provides market data in a user friendly and consistent format across 20 African countries, as well as important key economic data, which is critical in the salary review process. There has been a substantial growth in the number of participants and it is our objective to expand the number of countries currently surveyed, as participation grows.

The survey is participant based – companies purchasing the survey are required to provide salary data for their respective countries and to complete a policy and benefits questionnaire.

Results are published per country, by Grade (Global Grading & Paterson Grading) and reflect annual remuneration in Basic Salary, Annual Guaranteed Package and Annual Cost of Employment, together with economic indicators for each country. Pay scales are published for both In-Country and expatriate staff.
