Survey News

Survey News.BlogWith the start of the New Year, MSEC’s Surveys Team would like to thank all of the MSEC members who participated in our 2016 surveys. Thank you for partnering with us to publish the most comprehensive and reliable compensation and benefit surveys for Arizona, Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming employers. We would not be able to publish our survey resources without your participation!

As the New Year begins, we want to take this opportunity to announce the 2017 MSEC Core Compensation and Benefits Survey Schedule. Please mark your calendar with these important 2017 survey dates!











Remember, each MSEC member that participates in one of the above compensation or benefits surveys is eligible to receive a FREE Custom Survey Analysis (CSA). The CSA is our thank you for taking the time to participate in surveys.

What is a CSA? A CSA allows an organization to compare its compensation and/or benefits against an aggregate data line of selected organizations of their choosing or by a specific survey demographic. A CSA can be requested for any or all jobs or benefit questions in the survey. We need a minimum of 10 participating organizations to run a CSA to protect the confidentiality of the participating organizations’ data.

MSEC will provide one complimentary CSA to organizations who submit questionnaires on or before the survey deadline date. The CSAs will be available upon request after the survey has been published. Don’t miss your opportunity to receive a complimentary CSA valued at $225!

We thank you for your ongoing support of MSEC’s compensation and benefit surveys. If you have any questions for us or suggestions on how we can improve the survey process, please contact us at 800.884,1328 or
