United Nations programmes worldwide support highly skilled and dedicated national staff. From its inception, the United Nations has recognized the central role of its locally recruited staff in its work. In recognition of the important contribution of national staff, the General Assembly established the founding principle for setting compensation for locally recruited staff. With the Flemming Principle, the General Assembly established and maintained that conditions of service for locally recruited staff should reflect the best prevailing conditions found locally for similar work.
In order to make the Flemming Principle a working reality, consistently applied in each duty station, the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) approved a comprehensive methodology. This methodology provides clear and consistent guidelines for evaluating local labour market conditions, identifying leading employers and establishing accurate comparisons with these employers to ensure that United Nations’ salaries reflect best prevailing conditions.
Salaries for locally recruited staff are established through labour market surveys of the employers presumed to be among the best in the locality. On a five-year cycle, comprehensive salary surveys are carried out to identify the employers that offer the best overall conditions in order to be a reference to United Nations salaries. Between comprehensive salary surveys, interim surveys are conducted to update information on changes in salaries and benefits for the retained comparator employers.
In Turkey, the latest Comprehensive Salary Survey was conducted in 2019.
Comparator employer is a local business enterprise or public institution selected to serve as an outside reference to determine appropriate salaries, allowances and benefits for locally recruited United Nations staff.
Comparators are public and private sector employers representing a cross-section of economic activity in Turkey. Selection of the best local employers is made through a process of data gathering and comparative analysis of the remuneration package of locally recruited staff.
There are two acceptable interim adjustment procedures, namely a mini-survey or indexation. The determination of the most suitable procedure should be based on the local conditions. At the time of the comprehensive survey, decisions should also be made on the appropriate manner to adjust salaries in the intervening period between comprehensive surveys. The establishment of an acceptable interim adjustment process requires accurate data and careful testing against past salary movements at the duty station.
The previous comprehensive salary survey has taken consideration of organizations with at least 50 employees in Ankara. UNDP IRH would like to obtain a review of the labor market in Istanbul and a comparison of labor market conditions in Istanbul to Ankara in order to evaluate whether differences in cost of living in two cities are reflected in labor market conditions. In this regard UNDP Istanbul Regional Hub would like to hire an International Salary Survey Consultant to initiate and coordinate this review process in-line with the authorized methodology.
