The Right People to Assist You

The Strategic Pay team is a unique blend of New Zealand’s leading remuneration specialists, accomplished senior consultants and talented survey professionals. Over the last 20+ years, our highly experienced team has developed a solid reputation as trusted advisors in remuneration and reward, and organisational performance improvement.

Our Story

From Strategic Pay’s inception in 1994, we have become a proven provider of job evaluation and remuneration services, particularly with the integration of remuneration and performance systems.

In 2004 the Company merged with the remuneration consulting and survey division of PricewaterhouseCoopers (briefly managed by IBM New Zealand) and went on to acquired both Higbee Schäffler in November 2008 and Moyle Consulting in 2012 to form New Zealand’s largest, full service remuneration consultancy.

Strategic Pay continues to grow and is proud to service New Zealand in all your remuneration needs.
