Renewable energy skills: salary surveys & benchmarking

The salary benchmarking process is complex, with several factors influencing the outcome of salary negotiations. This includes the push and pull factors of both the employee and the employer.

AltGen has a database of several thousand renewable energy-specific employees located throughout Africa. We can disaggregate this information into various stratified skills and seniority data. Salary benchmarking is usually done for an entire organization chart when costing out team remuneration when an international corporate enters a new market. It can also be done as a ‘once off’ engagement for a particular (generally senior) role.

Over the years AltGen has engaged with various stakeholders in the renewables game, assisting them to understand employee salaries, and giving them insights which enable a competitive advantage when attracting new employees or retaining existing staff.
