Adecco PayCheck 2010

What is the Adecco PayCheck Survey?

The Adecco PayCheck Survey 2009/10 is an independent and unique combination of insight and opinion from 300 employers across the private and public sectors, and national and regional pay scale information from the Office of National Statistics.

Key findings
In a year dominated by the challenges thrown up by the economic downturn, there are signs that employers are still prepared to invest in recruiting and retaining the talented individuals they feel are key to help them out of the economic slump and beyond.

Whilst employers have evaluated employment costs, recruiters have sought new ways to deliver value to clients.  The report highlights these changes and the way that we reward, incentivise and manage employees in the UK & Ireland.
