About Pay & Benefits Surveys
In addition to conducting our own NC-based Wage & Salary Survey, CAI co-sponsors several compensation and benefits surveys with fellow Employer Associations (EAAs).
Compensation surveys provide a wealth of information. All compensation surveys sponsored/co-sponsored by CAI provide various cuts of data, offering a full and comprehensive perspective for the user. Data cuts may include geographic region, company size, industry group, sales volume, and compensation type, among several others.
Compensation surveys, when used in conjunction with other sources, can serve as guidelines for employers developing or improving their compensation plans. They assist employers by providing the following:
- Job classification data to establish a framework for job analysis and development of job descriptions
- Pay ranges that reflect the increasing use of formal salary grades
- Minimum salary rates for new companies to determine their ability to recruit
- Comparisons of various compensation types such as base pay, incentive/variable pay, and total compensation

CAI conducts valuable surveys on employee benefits. Benefit strategies continue to evolve, and CAI surveys capture current trends.
Designed in collaboration with Hill, Chesson, & Woody (HCW), the NC Healthcare Benefits & Cost Survey is unique, as it provides employers with the critical information needed to manage their employee health plans. Benchmark comparisons of medical plan designs, premiums, and cost-sharing arrangements can be made with other local organizations.
The newly redesigned CAI Policies & Benefits Survey covers core/current trend topics in HR policies and employee benefit practices. In the past, CAI co-sponsored the national version of this survey. CAI saw the benefit of creating and conducting its own local version. Topic areas include Health & Welfare, Time Off, Pay Practices, Retirement Plans, Workplace Culture, Recruitment & Staffing, and Termination.
The updated Holiday Plans Survey, available to all members free of charge, provides information on employer observation of major holidays in the upcoming year.
