Annual 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 runs its Annual 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.

We offer compensation surveys in the following areas:

  • Actuarial 
  • Human Capital Outsourcing Services
  • Human Resources Consulting Industry
  • Middle Market Executive Compensation for Private Companies

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

Get the customized compensation data you need

Participation in most of our compensation surveys is free and comes with a complimentary executive summary. However, should you want detailed, customized data, you can purchase a report with data and analysis for selected positions. This report is structured so that results and insights can be easily communicated to your executive leadership team.
