Wages Guide

Are you unsure if you’re paying your team correctly? We can help!

Your employees are your most valuable assets, and our annual Wages Guide can help you stay up to speed with average retail wage rates around the country, so you can keep up with the competition, whilst ensuring your employees are rewarded appropriately.

Our Wages Guide is the most comprehensive guide to retail wages in New Zealand and provides up-to-date guidance on average wages rates for 23 retail-specific positions by merchandise, turnover and region.

This year, with the big jump in the Minimum Wage, and the impacts of COVID-19, the information will be more useful than ever.

You can check out a preview of the Retail NZ 2017 Wages Guide here.


“This report gives me the confidence to know that I am paying my staff fairly and above the industry average.”

– Jonathan, Fifth Avenue Menswear
