Formerly the North America Hotel Industry Compensation Survey, it has been split into separate US and Canada surveys for 2019 to better reflect the regional trends, positions, and participating organizations included. For the Canada Hotel Industry survey data, please click here.
Hotel organizations are invited to participate in this survey, pending review and approval of a membership application by the survey Steering Committee. Membership type is based upon organization size and ability to report data to the extent which the survey requires.

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.
