Whether you’re researching the latest executive assistant salary or receptionist salary, the Robert Half Salary Guide offers the latest hiring trends and up-to-date salaries for the administration and office support sector.
Staff retention a top priority
Unfilled positions can have a critical impact on companies, resulting in lost productivity, revenue and staff morale. Staff retention therefore needs to be a top business priority. Encouragingly, the majority (94%) of Australian hiring managers have policies in place to prevent their staff from leaving, whether that is developing employee wellness programs, or reviewing an admin salary regularly to ensure it’s in line with industry standards.
The importance of a cultural fit
Cultural fit continues to grow as one of the primary reasons why employees leave an organisation. Unfortunately 79% of hiring managers admit they have hired an employee who did not fit in well with their team. To prevent this occurrence, it’s important to ensure cultural fit is addressed early during the recruitment process. Hiring managers need to ascertain whether the candidate’s goals and values align with the company.
