HR Florida Announces New Partnership for Salary Surveys
After an extensive RFP process, HR Florida is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Kansas-based CompData Surveys Corporation to offer comprehensive pay and benefits data to its members. CompData Surveys has more than 25 years of experience in salary survey administration and has been a presence in Florida since 1996. HR professionals across the state can get discounted access to data from eight major industries, more than 350 cross-industry job titles, pay data including base rates, percentiles, ranges, etc., pay practices, and breakout data by FTE, revenue, profit status, industry, region, and local area.
“This is a great opportunity for HR Florida to once again offer something of value to HR business professionals across the state,” said president-elect Joyce Chastain, SPHR. “We hope that we can continue to assist our SHRM and chapter members in obtaining relevant, up-to-date information that will support them in managing their compensation practices.”
While the 2011 survey is underway, the 2010 report contains cross-industry information on more than 200 Florida organizations, 700 locations, and more than 600,000 incumbents. More information about the salary survey partnership program and how to participate can be found on www.hrflorida. org at Resources.
