Cubiks' NZ Salary Survey Leads The Way On The Web
The First Established And The First On-Line - Cubiks' New Zealand Salary Survey Leads The Way On The Web
The New Zealand Salary Survey, the country's longest running remuneration survey, has become the first New Zealand-based salary survey to go on-line.
The move means that participating companies can now access the most comprehensive range of information on salaries, fringe benefits and remuneration practices carried out in New Zealand by quickly visiting one Web Site (www.cubiksurvey.co.nz).
The survey, which is carried out twice a year by Cubiks, the specialist HR consultancy in the PAGroup, was first conducted in 1959. Since then both the range and the scope of the survey have expanded year on year, and it now measures the base salary and total remuneration movement of more than 300 positions across 500 contributing organisations.
Making the survey information available on the Web has been a key priority for Cubiks and is in keeping with the company's commitment to providing clients with leading-edge e-based tools that address the issues of selection, assessment and development and reward.
Kevin McBride, country manager of Cubiks in New Zealand comments: "Increasingly HR practitioners are using Web-based solutions to access important information about industry trends and practices and how these relate to their particular organisation. The easier the information is to access and use, the more valuable it becomes.
"Remuneration is a critical area for this. In its new on-line format, the information can be made available to a much wider number of people in a company than would be achieved by a single published report."
Designed by Wellington-based web creators Data Torque, the site features clean graphics and simple to source information. One of the main design objectives was to avoid the complex structures of similar overseas surveys. As Kevin McBride continues, the last thing people want to encounter on-line is unstructured, voluminous information:
"As well as standardised reports, users can cut and paste the information into their own spread sheets and reports. The flexibility of the Web enables users to focus on an area of specific interest and pull out the particular information they need.
"Again, rather than having to wade through a published report it is simply a matter of keying a question in and receiving an immediate and accurate answer." Having taken these first pioneering steps, Cubiks will now ensure that the site is enhanced and updated on a frequent basis so that it maintains its position as an invaluable tool for commerce and industry in New Zealand.
