Canada MBD: Executive Compensation Survey | Mercer

The role of leadership has never been more tested, or more important, than this year. A global pandemic triggered lockdowns, economic slowdown, and business interruption presenting unforeseen challenges to nearly every company and putting new pressure on leaders seeking ways to quickly pivot and adapt. Now, as companies move ahead, strategic, innovative leaders are a critical driver of success.

The Canada MBD: Executive Compensation Survey contains data from more than 700 organizations across multiple industries, providing compensation data for senior level roles across your organizations. You can refine the data by industry, geographic area, and organization size. Position families include:

  • Communications & Corporate Affairs
  • Finance
  • General Management
  • Human Resources
  • Legal, Compliance & Audit
  • Project/Program Management

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 leaders you need to push forward.
