According to our text, “A compensation survey is a tool used to determine the typical incentives that are provided to employees across a specific job, industry, geographic regions, etc. Data is collected from multiple employers and is analyzed to develop an understanding of the overall amount of compensation paid.” (Weathington, 2016, section 5.3, para. 1).
