Gathered from 26,000 organizations in 150+ countries across the world and based on 25 million employees, our compensation surveys cover every major country and industry and are updated multiple times per year.

Our surveys only use company-reported compensation data for base salaries, long-term incentives, allowances, variable pay and benefits. In addition, and uniquely, we also provide data on  pay-for-performance so you can assess how your compensation strategy is aligned to your performance management programs.

You can also use our comprehensive suite of tools and analytics — designed by reward professionals, for reward professionals — to assess and benchmark your own reward programs too.
