Salary Survey

A group of industry participants including salary survey, compensation technology and Human Capital Management software vendors are interested in developing standards that will facilitate efficient and secure communication between employers, service providers, and affiliated business processes such as salary surveys.  Standards would allow employers and service providers greater ability to streamline the survey participation and analyses processes, as well as enable better collaboration between related human resource systems and practices, ultimately providing better value and security from salary surveys

The HR Open Standards Salary/Compensation Survey standard should assist in streamlining the communication through the following:

  • Allow for quick connectivity between survey vendors, survey participants and affiliated business partners such as HRIS/ERP and compensation management software companies with reduced IT efforts
  •  Reduce turnaround time for submission of survey participation data due to seamless communications between parties
  • Reduce data entry errors by eliminating manual intervention
  • Increase security of HR information transmitted
  • Reduce labor costs associated with manual data capture, transcription, transmission, and storage         

The standards may initially include localizations for 2-3 countries but will be enhanced to include additional countries in future projects.
