The 2017 GMA SHRM Compensation Survey

A tight job market in Dane County along with the lowest unemployment rate in the state has made finding talent more challenging than usual for Madison area employers. Offering a competitive wage is one of the best ways to maintain an edge in recruiting and retention, but to do that we need to know what other companies are offering their employees. Thatís where the GMA SHRM Compensation Survey comes in.  Specialized to local data and local market conditions, the GMA SHRM Compensation Survey is an invaluable resource when compared to other surveys on the market.

We are proud to have entered into an agreement with Gallagher Surveys, one of the most respected providers of regional, national, and local compensation and benefits surveys to trade and professional associations.  Gallagher has been producing compensation surveys for over forty years, publishes over 60 annual surveys, and is growing. Gallagherís surveys are administered through a flexible and secure internet survey portal, designed to provide data that is reliable, while being convenient and user friendly for participants.  The survey is conducted every other year. Results are presented by industry, total revenue, total number of employees, and type of ownership and will be available for purchase in early September.
