In order to make sure the data is relevant and credible; the company will gather survey data from participating employers using data gathering interviews.  These one-on-one conversations are conducted either over the phone or in-person with a survey specialist, resulting in a fast and easy process for data submission.

The African markets include a myriad of cash allowances and in-kind benefits, which vary by country, and even by the employer in the same country.  Unlike other surveys, we capture all of the allowances and in-kind benefits offered and can associate these benefits to individual positions.

Our surveys include information on all common components of remuneration, including:

  • Base salary
  • Guaranteed payments
  • Short-term incentives
  • Cash allowances (e.g., housing, transport)
  • Meals, cafeteria, beverages
  • Company products
  • Subsidized loans
  • Recreational activities
  • Various other in-kind benefits

In addition to the above allowances and benefits, we also capture prevalence information about other benefits and policies, including:

  • Retirement schemes such as company pensions, savings, and provident funds
  • Health insurance, life insurance, and other insurance benefits
  • National social security schemes and labor law provisions
  • Family benefits
  • Leave benefits

All data is reported on both a gross (before-tax) and net (after-tax) basis.
