2022 Participation Station

Your one-stop destination for details on becoming a part of Mercer’s US and Canada compensation and benefit surveys

The talent market is heating up, workers are leaving jobs at an unprecedented rate, and employees’ needs have shifted during the pandemic. This is putting new pressure on employers when it comes to finding and keeping talent. In fact, 70% of employers say they are reevaluating compensation and benefits in response to employee attraction and retention challenges.* Your total rewards strategy can demonstrate an immediate message of value to your employees and it can help secure your workforce. Using current, relevant data that reflects the market and how it’s changing is a good place to start.

Participate in a Mercer survey today so that you can:

  • Right-size pay across your organization
  • Address inequities by making consistent, data-backed decisions
  • Set and adjust policies to stay competitive beyond the pay check
