Designed specifically to meet the information needs of California employers, the Gallagher California Total Compensation Survey reports up-to-date cash compensation (base and variable pay) data specific to over 100 core cross-industry jobs in addition to selected industry-specific jobs.

Published each year early in October, participating organizations' characteristics are used to compile data into meaningful industry, location and size categories.

All California employers are invited to submit data between June and August.
