A Study of Trends in Compensation Structure and Salary Increments

The FY22 Increments Benchmarking Study aims to assess trends in salary increments and compensation budgets, by function and level of management, across companies. Over 220 organisations across a wide gamut of industries and of varying size and ownership participated in a survey on these issues, conducted in January 2021. The report provides data on parameters such as overall compensation budgets, the share of variable pay and increments across levels/functions.

Compensation budgets and Increments data is presented for each function (sales/marketing/customer service, business/operations/manufacturing, finance/treasury, HR, shared services, facilities/IT/administration) and management level (C-level, senior management, middle management, junior management, blue-collar workforce). Detailed data-splits are offered for each parameter by sector/sub-sector, revenue, ownership (foreign vs Indian), listing, domain (manufacturing vs services) and orientation (B2B vs B2C). Additionally, increments data is provided for talent groups (HiPos, top/average/low performers).
