Participants and Report
As a thank you for your participation, we will provide you with a complimentary copy of the Participants’ Survey Report for your use. This detailed report will include statistics on roles, pay levels, and performance levels by job type. All statistics are reported at a multiple company level and preserve the confidentiality of participating companies. The report also includes information on key challenges and trends around performance, compensation and year over year analysis.
The data you will need to complete this survey includes:
- Basic information on company size and focus areas
- Information on the roles of each major sales management and recruiting job. NOTE: Participants will only provide date for the job relevant to their company.
- Most recent year’s compensation data for each role, which should include target and actual base salaries and incentives (highs, lows, midpoints, and averages for the people in each job role)
- Information on the types of performance measures (e.g., revenue, gross profit, product mix) used in each compensation plan
- Information on the types of mechanics (e.g., commission, bonus) used in each compensation plan
- Information on approximate quota size for each job
- Descriptions of any rewards and recognition programs used by your company
- Description of how you administer the compensation plan
If you have your sales job and compensation data available, this survey should take about 60 to 90 minutes to complete. You may also save your work on the survey by selecting “save and continue,” and then finish the survey at a later time on the same computer.
I am happy to provide an Excel spreadsheet that matches the survey questions to help you gather and track the information needed to complete the survey. Please email me at email@example.com, or Eileen Gold at firstname.lastname@example.org.
