One of the great benefits of this online survey is organizations can update salary and benefit information throughout the year as changes occur. When you make updates, we encourage you to contact Regan Brown with Waters & Company ( or HR staff as noted above, so we can ensure your updated data gets posted as soon as possible. There will generally be a two-week lag before the updates are posted to the website so the data can be reviewed for any inadvertent errors. Remember, continued participation in the survey is required to continue to receive free access to the survey results.
