The 2021 data collection window is now open.
SMPS members who add their data (40% or more) by October 23 will be entered for a chance to win one of six $50 e-gift cards.
Data collection temporarily closes on November 19.
Members who answer at least 40% of the questions receive free access to view results and run filtered reports starting on December 13.
When results and reports become available, use the Compare feature to see how you compare to other participants for every question in the Survey. Use the Reports and Charts tab to apply filters to compare data in a variety of ways. This feature also lets you view personalized reports (with your data set shown) or non-personalized reports (without your data set shown) for the individual or company.
Since 2014, the SMPS Salary Survey has provided annual updates and comparison reports to the SMPS community, educating marketers about hiring and spending trends of participating companies. This study is the largest compensation and metrics survey of marketing and business development professionals in the A/E/C industries available today.
This comprehensive survey allows you to benchmark your salary, compensation, and firm metrics against your peers. How does your compensation package compare?
You can also use this data to inform your next performance review, and ensure that your firm’s compensation program remains competitive.
