Data Bite May 2018
Gaining access to data can be challenging for some IR Offices; especially Human Resources (HR) salary data. During the 2015 National Survey of IR Offices, we learned that, on average, 42% of IR Offices had unrestricted access to salary data and 34% had no or very limited access.
However, when the IR Office supports the HR Office in some capacity (e.g., providing data/analyses/information or providing coaching), we find that their access to salary data is more likely. We found that 59% of IR Offices that provide a high level of support to the HR Office (both in information and coaching needs) have unrestricted access to salary data compared to 24% who provide no support to the HR Office.
