Talent Retention Toolbox


CSIA Talent Retention Toolbox:
Track your compensation practices

With record low unemployment and one of the hottest integration markets in years, attracting, retaining, and developing talent is at the top of every integrator’s strategic priority list. To help members address this challenge, the CSIA Benchmarking Committee has partnered with  iLumen to provide a compensation and benefits survey called the Talent Retention Toolbox (TRT) that is exclusive to the SI industry.

TRT provides salary information for a comprehensive list of 34 SI Industry job titles. The survey also provides insight into additional benefits like retirement programs, medical benefits, PTO, bonuses, and more to provide you with a holistic compensation picture. Additional high-level HR analytics like industry turnover rates, recruiting sources.

Here’s how it works: The survey opens in January, and participants can enter their data until the end of February.  The survey data entry period has ended for 2024. There is a nominal fee of $350 for participating, and the final report will only be available to CSIA members who input data and pay the program fee. The final report will be made available to participants by March 15.  

Paid participants that join the program after the survey closes can get a copy of the final report, but their data will not be included in the final results.

To participate, hit the subscribe button below. This will generate an email to let us know you are interested. From there, we can process payment and then send you a link to enter your data.

Salary is the biggest expenses for CSIA members. Why not access the best information for your decisions by contributing your own data into the pool?

Note: For the rollout of this program, we will restrict participation in the TRT only to SI with U.S. operations. We need to do this as different countries have different legislation and nomenclature for employment benefit programs. We may review extending to other countries in the future.
