The nature of work continues to change at a rapid pace. According to Mercer’s recent Thriving in an Age of Disruption research:

  • 35% of today’s skills won’t be relevant in three years.
  • 45% of the work people do today could be replaced by automation.
  • 93% of organizations are planning to redesign their structure in the next 2 years.

Keeping up-to-date on pay levels for these new and emerging jobs is more important than ever. For example, pay for digital analytics jobs increased by more than 10% last year, much greater than increases received by employees in other areas of work. The US NewWorkNow Compensation Pulse Survey is a series of pulse surveys designed to help you keep up with this constantly changing environment. Get the data you need now, faster. Data on base pay, short and long-term incentives, and sign-on bonuses is available along with several pay policies and practices.

Salary Survey Methodology

Mercer surveys are designed using the most accurate and up-to-date market data practices. Data is collected from HR professionals at participating organizations 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.
