What Data is Included in the Survey?
Each Community™ Market Compensation and Benefits survey includes detailed information about salary, cash allowances, variable pay and in-kind benefits.
Examples of cash allowances include:
- 13th or 14th month
- Christmas bonus
- Transport allowance
- Housing allowance
- Any other fixed cash payment
In-kind benefits are items such as:
- Food and beverages
- Recreational activities
- Commuter bus
- Subsidized loans
- Any other benefit in-kind that is provided
Each of these elements of reward are valued and displayed, by grade, at various percentiles to illustrate the market practice. Alongside the market data, your data is shown in a separate column, making it easy to compare your package to the market.
In addition to information about employers in the market, each survey report also includes prevalence information for security benefits such as pensions and health care; insurance; family benefits and leave provisions. A summary describing the local Social Security and labor code provisions is included, along with information about income taxes and exchange rates.
Our standard report is provided in a two-part PDF format (see samples). As an option, clients can subscribe to the survey via our Indigo™ software, which enables users to do additional analyses and download data to Excel.
