To start, ERI Salary Surveys participants receive results for half the price. Our numerous industry-specificand job function surveys provide HR and compensation professionals with a wide range of trusted resources for managing pay without breaking the bank. As an added value, those who contribute data also receive a complimentary electronic copy of the Executive Summary once the survey is released.

For Assessor Series subscribers, 2012 ERI Salary Surveys (PDF versions) are free with participation (printing and shipping costs apply to hardcopy requests). There is no limit to the number of surveys in which a subscriber may participate. Our salary surveys give subscribers a permanent copy of ERI pay information with a data date of March 31, 2012, in addition to actual participant data. By participating, subscribers add to the quality of ERI’s employer-provided salary databases, which are reflected in the Assessors you use. Please note: The offer is available to subscribers with valid license codes, and surveys must be accessed through the website via the Platform Library. If you are not already an Assessor Series subscriber, please sign up for a Guided Tour.

Participation in ERI Salary Surveys is easy; for-profit and nonprofit compensation and benefits survey submissions are accepted online, via email through an Excel copy of the questionnaire, or in the old-fashioned paper and pencil format by mail or fax. Data collection continues until March 30, 2012. The 2012 ERI Salary Surveys will be released in August. Results may be purchased on a nationwide or state basis.

New for 2012, ERI Salary Surveys is offering a Physicians Salary Survey for the United States and Canada. This job function survey includes a variety of positions, from toxicologist and pediatrician to psychologist and veterinarian. In total, more than 50 different jobs are included in the Physicians Salary Survey. This is also the first year for open participation in the Aerospace Salary Survey, which documents market-based pay for more than 100 industry-specific benchmark jobs, including executive positions.

Each survey reports employer-provided data derived from survey participants, digitized public records, and ERI Economic Research Institute’s patented online, interactive salary surveys and Assessor Series databases. Salary information for each job title represents actual data points—no attempt is made to alter the data as collected, reported, and graphically displayed other than to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date.

Not only do you save money by participating in ERI Salary Surveys, your organization’s pay information enhances the validity of the results. For more information or to request participation materials, please emailsurvey.sales@erieri.com or call 1-877-210-6563.
