  • 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.

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.
