We would like to invite you to a no-obligation design meeting in preparation for our 2017 Legal Industry Remuneration and Benefits Survey

2018 Legal Industry

Remuneration and Benefits Survey

We would like to invite you to a no-obligation design meeting in preparation for our 2018 Legal Industry Remuneration and Benefits Survey


  • The survey price INCLUDES unlimited access to all data for all positions (over 1700 positions) on RewardOnline (our National Salary Survey) for a full year. This constitutes a massive savings benefit.

  • The survey will be tailor-made to suit specific requirements.

  • The reports include both a Remuneration report AND a report on Benefits in the Legal industry.



Current, valid survey results are an invaluable tool when making important remuneration decisions during the course of the year.

Equal Pay legislation

Very importantly, the survey results can assist in ensuring that your organisation is in a position to comply with the legislation tabled in the Employment Equity Act, “Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value” which came into effect on 1 August 2014.

We invite organisations with Legal roles to partner with us in the design of the survey.

  • We would like to discuss the particular requirements that you may have for the survey, in terms of both roles and survey content, so that the end product will meet your organisation’s needs.
  • You will be required to send us your role descriptions.

Once the remuneration information and specific roles have been agreed on, we will:

  • collect data from each participant
  • analyse the data and
  • produce an in-depth report detailing our findings.
