Compensation Surveys

Benchmarking Pay for Future Success

Ensuring your employees are competitively paid is critical for attracting the right talent and retaining your workforce. As labor markets shift with economic changes, there are risks for your organization if your pay practices are out of alignment. Paying above or below market can have consequences, and your compensation strategy must align with your company goals and philosophy. 

The Benefits of Compensation Surveys 

Participating in a compensation survey provides you with reliable, comparative data from which you can evaluate the appropriateness of your pay across key jobs in your organization. Key benefits include: 

  • Focused results – In-depth studies on key functions and job families allow you to match jobs to get a full picture of roles within your organization 
  • Robust data – Including all elements of total cash compensation helps you understand how your pay practices compare and how different levers are used in relation to total compensation 
  • Multiple peer group comparisons – Analysis by job family, industry, geographic area, and company size provide various data points to inform your decisions 
  • Trending – Regular participation provides visibility to pay trends over time and how your adjustments align with the market
