Employers Council has been gathering and distributing survey data since 1947. Our diverse membership enables us to gather information on a wide variety of topics and segment that data into meaningful, useful information for our members. Quality data are essential to make good decisions that drive desired results. For compensation and benefits planning, and many other employment practices, Employers Council members have relied on our surveys for decades. A team of seasoned and dedicated survey experts collect and validate the data to ensure accuracy. Breaking out data by industry, geographic area, and other relevant factors allows “apples to apples” comparisons so members can accurately identify marketplace conditions and strategically benchmark budgeting and business decisions. Members have access to reports prepared by our survey team and a powerful self-service tool to create custom reports. Have a niche survey need? The team can help with that, too.
