The UK has a thriving technology industry with many of the global technology companies headquartered here, along with a growing number of successful startups. It is a sector where innovation can be an opportunity, as well a threat. Organisations need to plan for the long term but also be ready for an immediate change.
The competition for skilled technology talent is possibly stronger than any other sector. We have worked with clients that have made the transition from a paper-based organisation to a technology organisation, resulting in a completely new pay and reward framework and a new set of challenges.
Another priority in the technology sector has been to recruit more women. We work with our reward consultancy clients to understand their pay and reward policies and framework to create a more fair, equal and transparent structure.
