North America 2020 Data Refresh

Ensuring reliable and relevant market data

Introducing the new Mercer Job Library image

Having up-to-date survey data that reflects market changes is essential for salary planning, benchmarking, and strategic hiring or rehiring. This is especially true in light of the global pandemic and the drastic economic and workforce changes we’ve experienced as a result of it. To account for market movement, we are happy to announce our first-ever data refresh! Many clients have reached out to understand if the data collected during the regular participation cycle will be relevant when surveys publish. With actions like mass re-hires, salary reductions, adjustments to incentive plans and payouts, and the potential for many incumbents originally reported in the surveys to no longer be employed; our goal is to provide you with the most current, reliable data so that you can move forward confidently with your pay decisions.
