Your salary: COL 29
Your total benefits (bonus, LTIP, car etc.): COL 30
Your technology budget: COL 31
Well, we are close to the end of this Personal Benchmark Report, or perhaps you decided to scroll down to this section first (many do), so maybe you are only at the start!
But either way it feels appropriate to finish with salaries, because in a way they are the ultimate indicator of how the digital leader is valued with an organisation.
There are of course many, many factors that influence a salary. Ask a head-hunter (and our Harvey Nash business is just that), and they would say every person and every job has its own value and worth.
Harvey Nash are right. So treat these tables with caution.
The biggest factor that affects salary is budget size. Then followed by sector. Interestingly reporting line to the CEO or membership of the exec team only has a minor effect.
But the single biggest factor is the individual.
If you can have impact;
if you can cut through the fuzziness, confusion and uncertainty of the world around us and communicate with clarity;
if you can get the balance right between having just about the right amount of concern for governance whilst encouraging innovation and risk taking;
if you can realise that while business acumen is key, the real thing that differentiates you from the rest of the exec team is your understanding and enthusiasm for technology…
...If you can do all of these things, the rewards will follow.
That’s it from us. There’s plenty more in the report of course and on the microsite.
But before you go, we’d love your 30 second feedback. How valuable was this Personal BenchmarkReport to you?<link>
