Canada MBD: Engineering and Design | Mercer

Engineering professionals harness bold ambition and ingenuity to shape the modern world in which we all live. They also play an important role in driving business forward and maintaining competitive advantage — something we need now, more than ever. Increased demand for digitization, pressure to implement broader technological advancements, global competition, and an aging workforce are creating new challenges for companies as they work to secure talent for these important roles.

The Canada MBD: Engineering and Design Survey equips you with the latest, reliable data to make informed salary decisions for the engineering roles you have today and the ones you need tomorrow. The survey includes regional and national salary data from more than 600 companies allowing you to compare your compensation strategy to the market for base pay and short- and long-term incentives.

With talent becoming ever more agile and interchangeable, use this survey to understand pay practices of companies representing a range of industries, including:

  • Banking/financial services
  • Chemicals
  • Energy
  • High-tech
  • Life sciences
  • And many more

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.

Equip your company with dependable data to inform your compensation strategy.
