The Mercer Total Remuneration Surveys (TRS) provide comprehensive market data on compensation and benefits around the globe. These TRS results are published every year in more than 125 countries and are easily accessible through our online platform, Mercer WIN®, to help you optimize your compensation plans.
The primary focus of TRS is to provide market data for cross-industry jobs and industry specific data is also available through TRS industry supplements.
2017 Surveys are now open for participation

SURVEY OVERVIEW – An overview of the market pay trends relative to the prior year as well as a summary of the economic, political and labor trends in the selected country.
POLICY & PRACTICE REPORT – Access a summary of organizations’ remuneration policies, which includes salary budget forecasts, compensation mix by employee groups, short-term and long-term incentive practices, as well as benefits.
ACTUAL MARKET DATA – Determine which jobs are more competitive within the market with market analysis by job, inclusive of all remuneration values.
MARKET REGRESSION AND RELATED POSITION CLASS REPORT – Mercer's International Position Evaluation (IPE) methodology for job evaluation allows organizations to analyze markets by their position class for each of the major components of total remuneration.
To maintain a thorough and robust database that accurately reflects current compensation trends in the market, organizations are asked to provide their remuneration data and in return they receive a preferential price (or participant price) for the TRS results, which is significantly lower than the non-participant price.
Survey results may be purchased by organizations that do not submit data to the survey as well. The non-participant price will apply.
To continue producing a survey with high quality data, participating organizations are expected to:
Submit data according to the survey schedule.
Provide information for all compensation items collected (i.e.Base Salary, Guaranteed Payments, Short-Term Incentives, Long-Term Incentives and Benefits).
Report all policies applicable to the incumbents included in the survey.
Report a representative sample of the jobs in the organization, which means providing: (i) Jobs in all families (ii) Jobs in all levels of the organization (from Executive to Para-professional levels).
Respond to all the questions included in the Data Collection Kit (DCK).
Provide a good job match for the jobs submitted to the survey (when there is at least an 80% match between the organization’s job vs. the benchmark job description).
Report remuneration information by incumbent (not averages, midpoints, highs/lows, etc.).
Mercer TRS covers more than 400 cross-industry jobs, from executives to para-professional level, in the following job families:
Mercer's Total Remuneration Survey is made up of five components providing a complete picture of total remuneration data.
