Research and Insights

At the core of what we do, we first gather data and generate insights to identify gaps and propose informed interventions for long term success. Due to labor market data gaps identified, we conduct organizational and industry-based research for managers, leaders, and business owners to make informed decisions for their human capital.
We conduct periodic studies related to people in organizations and publish them to inform industry players and decision-makers on prevailing labor market conditions. Our studies range from pay scales by industry to emerging trends in the future of work in a Kenyan and African context.

Employee Satisfaction and Engagement Survey

Salary & Benefit Survey

Salary surveys serve many purposes, ranging from wage determination to competitiveness in the marketplace to internal salary equity concerns as they arise.
Compensation analysis is vital to providing fair, equitable compensation. Smart organizations know that providing the right compensation is one of the key pillars to attract and retain the best talent. A thorough compensation analysis provides the data and insights for critical decisions as it relates to salaries and total benefits for employees.

Geographic Salary Structures

Given that the Geographic salary structure is a widely used tool in the market today, Knightwise Human Capital Ltd is creating an Alpha version of it for Kenya.
Creating a geographic wage structure often involves one of three methods:
1. City
2. County
3. Region
Although a county or regional strategy may seem to be more straightforward, it can result in underpaying or overpaying in areas that are very competitive.
A city strategy, which enables a corporation to manage geographic pay by the city office location, is typically regarded as a best practice.
It might not seem realistic to differentiate by city when a company operates in numerous cities across Kenya or even the entire world.
One of the main challenges we believe KHC will be able to overcome with the help of the Geographic Salary Structure tool is developing a geographic pay scheme that is considerate of business demands, the current regulatory environment, and market pay rates. Through the use of this tool, we will be able to give our clients important insights.
