STARTUP COMPENSATION, HOLIDAYS & REMOTE WORKING: 5 INSIGHTS FROM OUR BENCHMARKING
Getting startup compensation right is important. While startups can’t afford to pay the same salaries as large corporations, their Founders and People leaders are typically very keen to pay competitive salaries and packages compared to other startups. That’s because they acknowledge that compensation is key – not just to attract great talent but also to retain and incentivise them.
The issue is – knowing what a competitive package looks like is actually pretty difficult, especially in the startup/scaleup world. Early-stage startups have often never hired for a specific role before and simply don’t know the market rate. And other key People topics like work from home, attrition, diversity and benefits have only recently become part of their agenda.
Our sister company, Payspective, wrote a very comprehensive article on startup benchmarking to help startup leaders set up competitive and fair compensation packages. Click below to read more.
