Canada MBD: Mercer Benchmark Database SKU_7398

Reevaluating rewards strategies is a priority for many companies as they look to secure critical talent, identify equity issues, and make smart investments with salary budgets. Having reliable, relevant market data to inform your pay strategy is essential for making the right employee compensation decisions and securing the right talent.

Representing a broad range of industries, the Canada MBD: Mercer Benchmark Database delivers current insights on pay for your employees across skill levels and career streams — from traditional benchmark positions to emerging roles — with data organized into eight functional modules.

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.

Harness valuable, reliable data for thousands of jobs found in Mercer’s most popular salary survey.
