The Association 2019 Compensation & Benefits Survey
Share |

The Association wants you to have ongoing access to compensation and benefit information, so you can better assess your own practices and stay competitive in the industry.

Meet the 2019 Compensation & Benefits Survey: more than just a biennial survey, it is an online benchmarking platform which you can visit anytime, either to add data or to run reports!  This comprehensive resource is designed to give you anytime access to on-demand insights related to compensation and benefits across nearly 60 job descriptions, representing organizations across the U.S, Canada and even beyond. Access will be available through December 31, 2020. We've gone green and there will no longer be a printed survey results booklet!

Your participation is critical!
By investing time to enter the data for your organization, you will unlock access to valuable data and intuitive reporting tools to help you share information within your agency, respond to requests from the community, and benchmark your organization against peers. As more organizations participate, the survey data will become even more valuable.

Your participation is cost effective!
Participate by September 30, 2019, for free access!

Participating organizations that have met a completion threshold (by answering 50% of the questions, including all required questions) by Sept. 30, 2019, will be eligible to receive access to dozens of reports at no cost. Both members of The Association and non-members are welcome to participate. Non-members will need to create a free “Learning Non-Member” account in order to log into the survey site to enter data and run reports.  Organizations who participate after Sept. 30, 2019, will pay a fee.

Organizations who don't wish to enter data may purchase access to some data and reporting options (no comparisons with their own org) without participating in the survey, but will have the option to add data 


Your organization’s specific data is private and confidential - it is never shared with anyone. All results are shown as aggregate data and a minimum of ten responses are needed for any question’s aggregated results to display.
