Korn Ferry Hay Group is seeking participants for its 2017 retail stores compensation survey to benchmark store, corporate and distribution/fulfillment centre roles. Participants are sought from all retail organizations across Canada and the USA who have operations in Canada.
Over the past few years, an increasing amount of international retail organizations have moved into the Canadian landscape, and we have experienced growth within our very own Canadian retailers. Consumer trends are moving towards online purchasing and it is growing increasingly important to stay competitive and benchmark these vital roles.
Store associates are the largest group of employees in a retail organization, and their compensation costs can dramatically impact your bottom-line. Knowing the market rates and what to pay your hourly and salaried employees are crucial to attracting and retaining the talent you need while managing your organization’s costs. This survey will allow you to benchmark your hourly and salaried positions at a local, provincial and national level.
Last year, our survey collected data from over 236,000 incumbents representing 38 divisions of 26 Canadian organizations. Our data comes straight from the source! We work directly with Human Resource and Compensation teams, ensuring reliable and robust data.
For further information and participation please e-mail the retail account manager, Morgan Frese at or call 416-815-6353.
