Compensation Survey


EFI has been conducting Executive Compensation Surveys since 2004 annually for Engineering, Pharmaceutical and FMCG industries. On participants’ demands we added logistics sector in 2016. Some companies in services sector (including IT, Banking, Medical etc) and construction and infrastructure sector have expressed their interest to participate the survey. Hence, we are adding these sectors in the current survey. 

Sectors to Cover in the survey
1            Engineering & Manufacturing Sector
2            Pharmaceutical & Chemical Sector
3            FMCG Sector
4            Logistics Sector
5            Services Sector (IT / Banking / Medical)
6            Infrastructure Sector

Job equivalence will be established through job matching of clearly identifiable jobs across levels and positions. The Survey is carried out after establishing job equivalence at each of 6 levels, and, 12 benchmark jobs across the survey participant organizations. The levels and benchmark positions could be customized for different sectors as per suggestions by participants.

The data will be collected, collated, and analyzed to indicate key elements of compensation, also total cost to the company.  Performance related incentives also will be covered in the Survey.

Survey reports will be different for different sectors.  Industry-wise comparative median also will be provided on demand.

Before finalizing the report efforts will be made to verify respective company data with its authorized representative. Suggestions from participants could also be considered.
