Healthcare jobs will be amongst the fastest-growing in the United States through 2026, according to recent projections released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) . To keep up with this growth, understanding what positions are “hot”, retaining the employees you have today, and attracting the critical roles for future success is key. A crucial element to this proactive approach is leveraging data that drives calculated compensation planning.

The compensation data from the US Healthcare System and Hospital (IHN) survey helps you evaluate your healthcare salaries from top to bottom. Utilize the data collected within this survey, such as – base salary, total cash compensation, total direct compensation, and incentive information – to analyze numerous healthcare position families. These compensation metrics are available within eight survey modules to ensure you have the vital market data for the position(s) that you need.

Is your healthcare organization positioned for the workforce of the future?

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.
