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, this prominent survey gives your company the information it needs to plan the most effective compensation strategy for 2017.
This survey includes the following information for six non-union employee levels: executive, management, professional (sales), professional (non-sales), office/clerical/technical, and trade/production/service as well as unionized employees analyzed by region and by industry group:
- Actual 2016 and projected 2017 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.
- Attraction and retention practices.
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 2017.
In addition to updated information in December, survey participants receive free results via Mercer PayMonitor®. PayMonitor permits you to quickly access market data and regression analyses using template reports or custom reports you create specific to your market needs. You may also view, download, or print the entire published report. Non-participants may purchase the PDF results without access to PayMonitor functionality.
