Paying It Forward Pays Dividends for the Internal Audit Profession
The IIA’s 2014 Compensation Study Is Open

Do something for your profession while doing something for yourself. Participating in The IIA’s 2014 Compensation Study is the ultimate win-win. By taking time out of your busy schedule now to share your insight, the entire profession (yes, that includes you) reaps the rewards when the report is released in the fall.

Take this opportunity to tell the true story. General unemployment numbers can be misleading. Even in an economy still struggling to recover, those with in-demand skills are able to make demands when it comes to compensation. Does your organization know what it takes to secure top talent? Guessing is not a risk it can afford to take.

Organizations need a complete arsenal of information to know what top candidates expect and are receiving in today’s marketplace. The IIA’s Compensation Study provides the benchmarking data organizations need to assess current pay practices, plan for the future, and build and maintain a team capable of meeting stakeholder demands.

Since 2008, The IIA’s Compensation Study has been performed in partnership with a leading human resources and total rewards system consulting firm, Harrington & Associates, assuring the validity and credibility of the study. Your participation is critical and time is of the essence — the 2014 study survey closes June 16.
