The US Compensation Planning Survey is the leading source for compensation data on current and projected pay increases, structure adjustments, variable pay programs, and non-traditional pay programs. With over 1,500 participating organizations in 2015, this prominent survey gives your company the information it needs to plan the most effective compensation strategy for 2016.
This survey includes the following information for five employee levels (executive, management, professional sales/non-sales, office/clerical/technical, and trades/production/service) analyzed regionally and by industry group:
- Actual 2015 and projected 2016 salary increases and structure adjustments.
- Use of lump sum payments in lieu of salary increases.
- Salary differentiation and pay for performance practices.
- Short-term incentive practices.
- Prevalence of non-traditional pay and attraction and retention practices.
In addition to updated information in November, participants have access to unlimited custom reporting in Mercer PayMonitor®, our online data analysis tool. Non-participants may purchase the PDF results without access to PayMonitor functionality.
Only participants in the US Compensation Planning Survey will be invited to provide updated figures later in the year and as a result will receive complimentary information on updated salary increase budget projections for 2016.
