Compensation Surveys

Is your top talent leaving because of your compensation practices?

Your company’s success depends on retaining talented employees at all levels within your organization. Yet companies like yours often have no reliable, third-party data to help you compare your compensation packages to your competition and the broader market. McDermott Associates develops and conducts compensation surveys for organizations just like yours. Our surveys provide timely data and insights that help you build compensation plans to reward and retain key employees, while aligning with business strategy and performance.

Annual Compensation Surveys

We offer compensation surveys in the following areas:

In each survey, base salary, short-term incentive, long-term incentive, and total compensation data are presented at the 25th, 75th, and 90th percentiles. Data integrity and relevance is assured by our:

  • Survey confidentiality
  • Multi-step quality control process
  • Peer group oversight
