::Local Benchmark Surveys::

Compensation Advantage has developed a process and survey summary system that compiles individual employee data simply for anywhere from a handful to hundreds of jobs. The process ensures participant confidentiality while reporting detailed results to all participants.

As you are aware, the Department of Labor has prosecuted industry associations for conducting their own compensation surveys. Compensation Advantage stands ready to support you in the collection and summarization of base and total annual compensation data.

Survey results can be reported for all participants or be broken down by geographic area. Surveys can typically be completed in a six week window from the time participants are identified and invited to participate until a final report is ready for distribution.
