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.

For the past 16 years, 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. 


                                                                             2019 SURVEY CALENDAR & TIMELINE

New for 2019

We have been diligently working on a proprietary software program that will allow participating hotels to input their data on-line.  We are hopeful to launch this program early/mid 2019.  The format will look the same as it has in the past, but will not be presented in an excel format.  Participants will need to complete each field, and the results will be tabulated by our program.  We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding while filling in your data.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to email us at, or call 818-845-5584.  Thank you!
