The PSAC Total Compensation Survey, commissioned annually by PSAC and conducted by Willis Towers Watson, analyzes current salary and benefits practices in the petroleum service, supply and manufacturing industry. In 2015, detailed data was collected and analyzed for just over 28,000 employees from 62 companies. Data were received for over 280 positions, including executive, senior and middle management, supervisory, technical, professional, field, manufacturing and administrative areas.

Also included in the report, the Benefits component provides a more complete picture of total compensation, and further enhances the value of the Survey Report for members.

This Survey is an excellent tool for budgeting purposes and staying competitive with your compensation packages. Invitations to participate in the Survey are sent out in January each year, data is collected during April and May and the Final Survey Report is published in July. The Survey is only available to participating PSAC Regular and CAODC members. Contact PSAC at djourneay@psac.ca or 403.781.7381 to find out how you can participate in the upcoming Survey.
