WALGA Salary and Workforce Survey 2017
 
The WALGA Local Government Remuneration Survey is back and it has a new name! As you may be aware, after more than two decades of delivery, WALGA took an opportunity to review the scope and format of the annual salary survey in 2016 and is now excited to invite you to participate in the new and improved WALGA Salary and Workforce Survey 2017. WALGA has contracted SalaryOne, a Perth based remuneration consulting business, to deliver the new service.

Salary and Workforce Survey 2017
 
Data Collection  The survey will be distributed to Local Governments in Western Australia and the Northern Territory and its success relies on high levels of participation. While the data gathering process for the 2017 survey will remain similar to previous years (excel spreadsheet), the reporting will take on a whole new format in line with feedback from the sector.
 
Online Portal
(Full Access)
In conjunction with SalaryOne, WALGA is excited to provide Local Governments who purchase the Survey Report, access to an online portal for full salary data and workforce resources. The portal will include access to position descriptions, key industry human resource metrics, salary and workforce data, online remuneration calculator and more.

Confidentiality - Based on feedback regarding confidentiality of individual data, access to the online portal within each Local Government will be limited to 3 nominated user logins. This will ensure that key individuals in Executive and Human Resources roles can access comparative data at the required level of detail, without public disclosure of individual data.
Full PDF Report
The full PDF report will be available to Local Governments who purchase the Survey Report. The revised format of the report will contain benchmarked salary and workforce data.
