Talent Retention Toolbox


CSIA Talent Retention Toolbox:
Track your compensation practices

It’s no secret that attracting, retaining and developing talent is something that keeps many SIs up at night. To help members address this challenge, the Statistics Committee, iLumen and staff have developed a compensation survey exclusive to the SI industry.

As of January 2020, the Salary Survey has evolved into a comprehensive annual talent compensation survey, called Talent Retention Toolbox (TRT). In addition to the traditional, salary-specific questions, TRT includes other ones around additional benefits (e.g., company matched 401k, medical, dental, etc.) to help provide you with a more holistic compensation picture.

Here’s how it works: The survey - by iLumen - opened on Jan. 1, 2022, and accepted data until February 18, 2022. Only CSIA members who input data and pay the program fee will have access to the final report, which will be available mid-March. 

This is a key departure from the approach we used for Salary Survey, where we didn’t establish a data-entry period. It is very important that SI owners support this process and we encourage you to reach out to the team at your company (HR) to ensure data has been entered by February 18, 2022.

New participants that join the program after February 19 can get a copy of the report that was issued in March if they have paid the program fee and input their data. 

Our goal is to significantly increase participation in this important program to ensure statistical significance and ideally allow us to provide results by geographical U.S. regions without compromising data confidentiality.

The annual price will be $350 and is available only to CSIA members. To participate, hit the subscribe button below. (That 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 one of the biggest expenses for most 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.
