Description

Within the international aid sector most organisations remunerate their national and international employees on different scales. The differences between the pay and benefits scales within this so-called dual salary system are often extreme, reflecting challenges of attracting skilled international workers to difficult contexts, whilst remunerating national employees appropriately within their local economy. This project builds upon a strong body of research into the psychological impact of these disparate salaries, in particular the negative impact on employee motivation and performance. We aim to collaboratively translate these research findings into an evidence-based protocol that provides practical alternatives to the dual salary system.
