Compensation Benchmarking


Real Time Compensation Benchmarking, Including a DEI Section

Stay competitive. Recruit and retain top talent.

Associations across the world are constantly adjusting their budgets and evaluating their resources, never more so than in today's social climate.

WSAE – in partnership with societies of association executives across the country – participates in a 24/7/365 compensation benchmarking platform designed exclusively for executives of professional, trade and service-centric associations/nonprofits.

WSAE's partnership with other SAEs allows us to make the Real-Time Compensation Benchmarking Survey tool available for our members. And by giving a little, you will GET A LOT!

Our goal with this program is to provide valuable data that will maximize your budget when making important hiring and personnel decisions, while keeping your organization competitive. Understanding how your organization compares to similar organizations in the region and across the country is vital to ensuring you're staying competitive, attracting and retaining top talent, and putting your valuable resources to the best use.

  • Compare your organization's key operational metrics to others across the industry in real time.
  • Evaluate valuable KPI's, including salaries, benefits, positions/departments, and more!
  • Generate customized reports and graphs like the below to inform decisions and keep your organization competitive.

In addition to compensation and salary information, this platform also gathers data on diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) initiatives, such as: gender and racial identity of employees; hiring practices; DE&I policies; and more.

The value of this platform will increase as more organizations participate (i.e. more data = better results). WSAE members participate at a substantially reduced rate.

Please note, this is a comprehensive survey with several sections of data. You do not need to complete the survey all at one time. To save your work and return to the survey later, simply click “Save” at the bottom of any page.
