Survey Topics for 2019

In this economy, architecture and engineering recruiters are chasing your star employees, so retaining them is mission-critical. Is your bonus and benefits package up to the task?

Incentive compensation and benefit package design is where many A/E firms struggle, operating on hunches, outmoded thinking, overheard anecdotes, rumors, and fuzzy math. Get this wrong and the good employees leave while the bad ones stay.

Make smart benefits and bonus decisions using the hard data and plain English analysis you get in the fully updated and expanded 2019 A/E Bonus & Benefit Plans Benchmark Survey Report.
