The Australian remuneration environment is constantly evolving and more competitive than ever. To stop staff from going to competitors, organisations have a responsibility to improve staff engagement and attract top talent with attractive salaries, a positive work-life balance and inclusive and diverse policies.

What are the most up-to-date salary trends, and what are the most effective tools organisations can use to increase workplace diversity?

You will learn:

• The most up-to-date salary trends are across various industries, levels and states
