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 2017, detailed data was collected and analyzed for just over 22,000 employees from 55 companies. Data were received for 283 positions, including executive, senior and middle management, supervisory, technical, professional, field, manufacturing and administrative areas.

The survey also includes a full Benefits component, providing a more complete picture of total compensation, and further enhancing 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 Core and CAODC members. Contact Doug Journeay at PSAC djourneay@psac.ca or 403.781.7381 to find out how you can participate in this year’s Survey.
