06/01/2021 2:05 PM


This report is on a survey that was carried out by IPC Pvt Ltd to find out the USD remuneration policies and practices in Zimbabwe. The survey was carried out in November 2020 and 82 organisation representatives responded from 18 different sectors. The organisational representatives were mainly HR Professionals.



A questionnaire with a total of 6 questions was designed and then distributed via email through an online platform called survey monkey. Data obtained was then analysed.



The number of respondents for some sectors was just one therefore the results could not be regarded as a representative sample for some particular sectors.
