Benefits & Compensation Surveys

HR best practice includes an at minimum bi-annual compensation survey to analyze, examine, and study your organization's wage and overall compensation package which would include your employee benefits.

Since 2003, Executive HR Consulting Group has been providing their clients with the information they need to intelligently evaluate their largest expense - compensation.  By having accurate, useful data on the compensation structure in a competitive labor market, management professionals can effectively consider industry trends and find opportunities for cost containment, reduction of turnover, improved budget analysis, and more successful recruitment efforts.  Information is specific, yet presented in a manner that maintains the strictest confidentiality for all participants. 


                                                                             2021 SURVEY CALENDAR & TIMELINE

We are excited to announce that we have launched our proprietary new software!  Participants accross the country (all surveys) will be able to complete their online registration and input their data in an easy to use format.  The online format looks very similar to the excel spreadsheets used in the past, and the survey results can now be  distributed much faster than in the past.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.


Due to the worldwide pandemic, we felt the need to cancel most all of our 2020 survey processes - Luckily, we were able to complete the Southern California Survey process just before Covid-19 hit our industry, and a total of 78 hotels participated in the survey, representing 28,716 guest rooms, and a total of 27,345 employees. 


Because our surveys are so much needed in the industry; Covid-19 or not, we will move forward with our survey process in 2021. As usual, a minimum of six (6) participants are needed in order to maintain the confidentiality of the data.  Below please find the 2021 Survey Calendar:

Due to the pandemic, and the difficulties our industry has been facing, the number of participants significantly deareased this year.  From 78 participating properties early 2020 (prior to Covid-19), only 43hotels participated in this 2021 survey, representing 13,034 guest rooms and 10,713 employees.

Our hearts and thoughts continue to go out to all properties still in serious financial difficulty - We are hopeful that this "transitional year" will help heal, and bring our economy and our beloved hospitality industry back to its business peaks, with outstanding guest service and hospitality!
