Oftentimes more a Census than a Survey
Founded 20 years ago as an outsource of salary survey analyses
, ERI has evolved into a geographic- and industry-specific salary survey
, cost-of -living
, and executive compensation
benchmark survey firm dedicated to research and development. ERI researchers collect skill measures and assist organizations with their compensation planning via salary software
and special reports. Traditional salary surveys sometimes reflect non-random samples; but ERI's databases have grown so robust, many ERI products can be better characterized as a census
. (Our focus is data; we do not provide fee-for-service consulting.)
R&D initiatives (in addition to enhancing our current ERI Products) include: developing online Assessor Series applications and provision of ERI's SalariesReview and PAQ's eDOT Skills and Competencies databases for subscribers' private use. Every database has a key: Social Security uses SS #s and the IRS uses organizations EINs. ERI uses longitudes and latitudes (for location to street address/suburbs), the abandoned US Dictionary of Occupational Titles (updated and enhanced) eDOT #s (for jobs), and a combination of the 1987 US SIC and present tax-exempt NTEE codes (for industries). Browser calls for job data, salary survey, cost of living, and other ERI libraries are available on a per feed basis; call 800.627.3697 if you have an internal need (not for resale). Other R&D initiatives include: offering 53 FREE one-hour compensation courses
for those new to the tradecraft, supporting college instructors
with free materials, and building and maintaining a library of modern-day skills for talent management
