Automation, technology, and increasing use of predictive analytics are changing the manufacturing industry — new jobs are emerging, existing roles are changing as technology advances, and employers are seeking and developing new skills for their workforce. A competitive pay strategy is key to finding and keeping the talent you need to embrace these changes and stay ahead of your competition.

The Canada MBD: Manufacturing and Operations Survey allows you to benchmark your pay with salary data for more than 350 positions representing 621 organizations across industries. Understand your competitive position compared to the market as a whole, or refine the data by geography, company size, and more. The survey covers all career streams and job families including:

  • Administration, Facilities & Secretarial
  • Engineering & Science
  • Human Resources
  • Production & Skilled Trades
  • Project/Program Management
  • Quality Management
  • Supply Chain

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.

Secure the talent you need to move ahead.
