Study Overview

We are pleased to invite your organization to participate in the second edition of the 2021 Salary Increase and Turnover Study, an in-depth exploration of global salary increase budgets, turnover trends and other important topics specific to overall salary planning and pay increase delivery.

This edition will collect critical information on 2022 budget plans and the current hiring environment, as well as pay practices and performance management data. Additionally, the study will give participants extensive country-specific coverage of salary increase budgets, and will cover a wide range of topics, such as:

  • Salary increases;  
  • Turnover trends;  
  • Workforce planning;  
  • Talent identification (e.g., high potentials, critical talent/key positions and top performers);  
  • Performance management;  
  • Pay philosophy and approach;  
  • Promotions;  
  • Special adjustments; and  
  • General increases - cost of living.

Complimentary Participation and Results

The results of this study provide every participant insight into salary increase budgets and turnover trends both locally and on a global stage, as well as well as perspectives on common practices in all aspects of pay increase administration.

All participants who provide a complete and accurate submission* by the deadline will receive a complimentary copy of the results in addition to results of the previous edition.

*The results you receive will be aligned with the quality and completeness of your submission. For example: if you submit data only for the U.S., you will only receive only U.S. results. By submitting data for all countries where you have operations, you will receive a full global report.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is all the data in one report?
    Based on your submission completeness, you will have access to a global or regional report. By providing U.S. data you will receive a separate report detailing salary increase results by employee groups within regions and industries across the U.S. and turnover results by region and industry segments.
  • What are the submission requirements to receive the full global results? 
    The results you receive will be commensurate with the quality and completeness of your submission. If you submit data for only the U.S., you will only receive only U.S. results. By submitting data for all countries where you have operations, you will receive a full global report.
  • Can I download a copy of the questionnaire?
    You can preview the Salary Increase and Turnover questionnaire in PDF format here. Note, these PDF questionnaires are for informational purposes only. You will still need to submit your organization responses through the online platform.
  • Do I need to be a current client to participate?
    All organizations are eligible to participate.
  • How long does the questionnaire take to complete?
    Returning participants will find it very easy to participate using a pre-populated questionnarie to validate and update.

    For an additional cost, all organizations with access to the overall results are eligible to order custom data cuts using the full list of participants to choose your select peer group(s). The list of participants and pricing is available in the order form.
  • Who is best suited to complete this study?
    In our experience, this survey is best completed by a member of your compensation team with knowledge of practices in the individual countries where you have operations. Collaboration with colleagues is available (anyone with access to the questionnaire can enter data), but the questionnaire is locked after one person clicks the "Submit" button.
  • Can I save my progress while I'm filling out the questionnaire?
    Responses are saved with each page you complete unless cookies are deleted. Contact us if you have concerns about lost data.
  • Will my answers remain confidential?

  • Can I access results without participating?
    Non-participants can purchase the results of the current publication from our e-commerce page. Please keep in mind, with a submission, results are complimentary. 
  • Why are results valuable?
    While this survey won't tell you what to do, it does offer insight into what other organizations are doing. Results provide valuable insight into the overall prevalence of practices and perspective into alternative plan designs for your organization to consider.
