What we do

From pay and benefits, to policy, compliance, and more, Ibec’s research unit provides the data and insights that your organisation needs, providing you with up-to-date benchmarking evidence to support your decision-making. We also analyse current and emerging trends and conduct annual and one-off surveys on a broad range of topics, based on member feedback and current business priorities.

A wide range of reports is available to Ibec members, including an annual detailed analysis of pay rates for over 250 positions, as well as a series of reports on emerging business trends. We analyse developments in HR priorities and procedures, legislative compliance, conditions of employment and the wider business environment. We use the findings of our research to inform and shape Ibec’s policy and lobbying work, regularly producing reports on topical policy issues which support you in making key business decisions.

Amárach Research are currently supporting Ibec’s Research unit on several surveys. Examples include HR Update, Manufacturing Survey and Balance for Better Business.
