Rather than using data interpolation, this survey provides specific salary differential information based on actual market data collected each year in Mercer’s compensation surveys. This salary survey methodology ensures that the information reflects the ever-changing Canadian compensation landscape.
Mercer surveys are designed using the most accurate and up-to-date market data practices. Data is collected from HR professionals at participating organizations (never employee self-reported) and then analyzed for validity, thoroughness, and market representation based on the organization's size, structure, geographic region, or a combination of these factors. A minimum number of incumbents, organizations, and distinct organizations are required in order to report each data element. If minimums are not met, the market data is suppressed, ensuring you the highest level of data confidentiality.
