Using the information

This report is intended to provide information to help organizations create and maintain an effective compensation system. It is important to note that there is no “right” or “wrong” salary, but the salary information can help agencies to design a compensation system that is in line with organizational objectives and is competitive in the market.


A salary and benefits survey is not intended to provide compensation data for every position in every organization, but to provide information on select benchmark positions common to most organizations. These benchmark positions allow an organization to make judgments as to the value of each position in relation to the benchmark positions and create a comprehensive compensation system.
