Buyers neglected on pay reviews

Buyers are often overlooked when it comes to pay and performance reviews, it has emerged.

Of 300 purchasing employers and employees surveyed by Hays Purchasing and Supply, more than a quarter of workers said they rarely have discussions about pay and in some cases have never had them. In addition, 30 per cent rarely or never receive performance reviews, the figures exclusively revealed to SM show.

Yet, employers believe reviews are taking place more often than they actually are. Nearly all, 92 per cent, said they hold annual pay reviews with their staff, but only 55 per cent of purchasing employees agreed.

Other findings showed conflicting views on career progression opportunities. Three quarters of employers believe they offer enough scope for staff to move up, but just 41 per cent of employees see these opportunities. Patrick Law, managing director of Hays Purchasing and Supply said that some employees might not realise their salary had been reviewed if it had not changed.
