It’s time for BLR and HRHero’s annual Pay Budget Survey. What’s happening with salary increases and bonuses in 2012 and 2013? How do your plans compare to those of your competitors? Let’s find out.

By sharing your insight, opinions, and experience, you can help highlight trends and define benchmarks — by industry, geographic location, and size of employer — that may help form your and other employers’ business plans for the coming year.

If you include your contact information where prompted in the survey, you’ll receive a PDF of the survey’s results via email. No individual organization’s information will be shared. Only results in the aggregate will be sent to participants or used by BLR for articles or in any other form of distribution.
