Knowledge Is Power
Find out how your agency stacks up.
Please note - only authorized agency key contacts (owners/principals) will be able to complete the Compensation Survey. The information you provide is completely confidential.
What do I need in order to complete the survey?
You will need your employee compensation records including SALARY (base, commission, and bonus) and BENEFITS (which ones you offer, how much you cover), and job titles for all agency employees. Please note that when entering data, enter figures only. Do not use commas, $, %, or any other symbols.
Can I complete part of the survey, save it, and finish later?
Yes. As you complete the survey and proceed to the next page, when you hit Next, the survey information saves automatically. If you need to stop at any point, finish the page you are on and hit Next. When you return, the survey will pick up where you left off.
Is the survey confidential?
Yes! Although the survey asks for specific data such as names and ages of agency employees, all responses are kept strictly confidential and reported only in the aggregate. No one will be able to identify a specific person or agency. If you do not want to include employee names, please just use Employee One, Employee Two (with Employee as the First Name and One as the Last Name, etc.) Note: Doing this may make it more difficult to complete update requests for later reports.
When will the survey close?
We hope that all agencies will complete it by the end of February. An actual closing date has not yet been determined.
How long will it take to complete the survey?
Once you have the information noted above, it should take about 15–30 minutes to complete, depending on the size of your agency.
