WALGA 2018/19 Salary and Workforce Survey – Launch
 
I am pleased to launch the 2018/19 Salary and Workforce Survey presented by WALGA and SalaryOne.  We encourage all Local Governments to participate in the survey as the survey results provide an invaluable resource to assist Local Governments in the planning and implementation of salary structures and workforce planning.

For the first time, users will enter and upload survey data directly to the web portal.

Survey topics
  • Organisational size – revenue and workforce.
  • Employee relations – employment instruments, employee status, contract types, contingent workers, enterprise agreement duration and pay rises.
  • Workforce profile by department, gender, age, occupation, apprentices and trainees.
  • Employee turnover, unscheduled absences, leave liability, leave provisions, termination and redundancy statistics.
  • Salary, superannuation, allowances, motor vehicles and fringe benefits.
  • Gender and pay equity metrics, including average salary per FTE and CEO to median worker pay ratio.
  • Human resource management practices and trends.
  • Labour market indicators – consumer price index, wage price index and annual weekly earnings.
