Canada MBD: Mercer/Gartner Information Technology Survey SKU_7400

Technology is at the forefront as companies have accelerated their digital journey in all areas – internal operations and the customer and employee experience. Faced with the pressure to be innovative and develop never before seen advantages, while still providing core support like automating legacy processes, organizations need skilled tech talent to drive success in the future. Reliable pay data is essential for securing your workforce now and going forward.

Mercer has collaborated with Gartner — America’s preeminent authority on IT — to bring you the Canada MBD: Mercer/Gartner Information Technology Survey. Access the most reliable salary data available for over 700 IT positions, covering all levels and career streams, representing over 700 companies across industries.

Understand your competitive position compared to the market as a whole, or refine the data by:

  • Company size (number of employees, net revenue/sales, or operating expenses/budget)
  • Geographic location
  • Industry

Current, reliable data
In light of the economic and workforce changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, Mercer conducted a “data refresh” in September to address any market movement that occurred after the initial survey participation period. You will receive the results of the refresh free with your purchase. This added step to ensure you have access to the most current, reliable data means you can move forward confidently with your pay decisions knowing that your data accurately reflects the market.

Prepare for your workforce of the future.
