Finance, accounting, and legal teams are an essential part of any company. To get the talent you need, you’re competing with companies from all industries and sizes. Paying competitively is key for securing, motivating and keeping your key employees. Having current, reliable market data is necessary for setting pay at the right level.

The US MBD: Finance, Accounting & Legal Survey includes salary data for nearly 900 positions to help guide your compensation planning for roles across four main career streams:

  • Executive
  • Management
  • Para-professional
  • Professional

Current, reliable data
In light of the economic and workforce changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, Mercer conducted a “data refresh” in July to address any market movement that occurred after the initial survey participation period. You will receive the results of the refresh free with your purchase. This added step to ensure you have access to the most current, reliable data means you can move forward confidently with your pay decisions knowing that your data accurately reflects the market.

Gain confidence in your pay strategy with relevant, timely market data.
