Are You Paying Employees Enough (or Too Much)?

InfoComm International® invites qualified HR and management professionals at AV companies to participate in its 2017 Compensation & Benefits Survey. The purpose of the survey is to benchmark best-practice salary information and benefits offerings at pro-AV service providers. InfoComm has partnered with Readex Research, an independent research firm, for the collection and reporting of data.

Participants will receive a complimentary copy of the final report — an ideal tool for seeing how your compensation and benefits compare to industry norms. Contact James Chu, Director of Market Research, at jchu@infocomm.org to qualify and receive a secure link for completing the survey. We need responses by Feb. 20, so take part today.
