While there is no steadfast formula to determine employee pay, Joseph Kilmartin, Director of Compensation at, shared his thoughts on what employers should consider when determining compensation rates.

According to Kilmartin employers need to look past compensation alone and focus on the total rewards the position offers, which includes salary plus bonuses, benefits, paid time off and other non-monetary incentives. Most employers assume that more money will keep employees happy when job satisfaction goes beyond compensation and shows a clear connection between the working environment, peer and supervisor relationships, and support. In Kilmartin's experience most employees don't leave a company based on salary alone. Rather, according to his data employees will only be prompted to leave their current position if they're offered an increase of at least 10% and other incentives elsewhere.
According to Kilmartin, the average annual raise that employees will receive in 2006 is 3.7%. He emphasizes the importance of giving increases based on pay for performance, rather than just giving a cost-of-living adjustment. In the perfect world, exceptional workers would be rewarded with increases that are at least 5% more than those received by the average employee.
Kilmartin suggests evaluating your pay rates at a minimum of every other year to ensure that you're competitive in the market. To make it manageable he recommends looking at 50% of jobs in year one and the remaining 50% of jobs in year two. However, if you're experiencing extremely high turnover he advises reviewing the data more frequently.
