Wage and Benefits Survey 2021

Participate Now

How does your company's salary, hourly wage and benefits compare with others in your region? Nationwide? Are you offering the right benefits to attract quality candidates?

ISA and its Affiliated Associations are working with Association Research, Inc. (ARI) to give you those answers by conducting a confidential Wage & Benefits Survey for the sign, graphics and visual communications industry.

Your prompt and thorough response will allow us to provide you with the most current, relevant, and accurate compensation information you can use in your recruitment efforts, benefits evaluation and budgeting.

I would like to request your time and attention on this very important and valuable resource. The greater the response, the stronger the data, so I am counting on you to participate. As a thank you, everyone who completes the survey will receive a free copy of the full ISA Wage and Benefits Report 2021 with detailed salary and benefits information across job functions. The report will be available later for purchase, but this is your chance to get it free. As an added incentive, all participants will be eligible to win one of five $200 (US) gift cards.

Association Research, Inc. (ARI), an independent third-party professional research firm, is carrying out all aspects of the work—survey distribution, data collection, tabulation, analysis, and reporting. ARI has a 37+ year history of research work exclusively for and with nonprofit organizations. At no time will individual respondent data be provided to ISA, an Affiliate or anyone.

This questionnaire should be completed by the person who manages salaries and benefits as a whole for your company, if you are not this person, please forward this link to the appropriate person.

You/they may complete the entire survey online by following the link provided here. Please follow the instructions carefully. If you cannot supply all of the information, please complete as much of the survey as possible. If you need more than one session to complete the survey, you may save your answers and return as often as you need until November 2, 2021.
