Corporate IT Remuneration Report (Australia)

Corporate IT staff are critical to the success of an organisation. Now, competition is high for emerging skills such as cyber security, robotic process engineering, agile, scrum and more.  

Digital transformation, eCommerce, remote access and data protection have become high priorities for many organisations due to COVID-19, while travel restrictions, restricted access to overseas candidates and an uncertain economic environment have all made it harder to entice qualified, high performing employees from a limited pool.

In this environment, how can you ensure you’re remunerating your team members in a way that is consistent with your competitors and the industry at large?

With Aon’s Corporate IT Remuneration Report, you receive the deepest, most in-depth coverage of specialist technical roles in the market, covering a variety of organisations and industries. With unparalleled, granular data, the report covers diverse skillsets; from security and digital, through to DevOps and big data. Covering almost every major technology employer in Australia – as well as a host of non-technology organisations – it is a must-have resource for HR professionals.
