Australia and New Zealand’s most comprehensive guide to salary and recruitment trends

Hays Salary Guide FY24/25 has demonstrated that this year should be the year for action. The data showed us that the extremes of the past year have stabilised, and that the workforce is ready to roll up its sleeves and get to work, but organisations continue to be cautious. While there is some indication that businesses expect activity to pick up in the 12 months ahead, that activity is going to be serviced increasingly by a contingent workforce as intentions to high permanent headcounts remains much lower than expected activity uptick. 

While overarchingly there has been a reduction in the extreme skills shortages of the past year, some industries are still facing extreme skills shortages, so how can organisations hold onto their top talent?

In this year's Hays Salary Guide, you’ll find:

  • What benefits top talent are looking for from their employers
  • Salary benchmarking to ensure you remain competitive
  • How many of your employees could be looking for a new job soon​
  • Make the numbers work for your career. Download today.
