Overview of Survey Reports

All reports are free of charge!

The Generic Report is a comprehensive compensation analysis of all survey submissions for the following positions:

  • Executive staff and key positions in operations, lending, IT and compliance 
  • Branch managers, tellers, customer service representatives
  • Inside and Outside Directors
  • Analysis of bonus pay, benefit plans and health insurance

What makes our compensation survey so unique are the Custom Reports. You will receive a Custom Survey Report when you submit your bank's demographic and compensation information. The Custom Report compares your bank's data to its peer group in regards to:

  • Asset Size
  • Community Type 
  • Geographic Location

Your bank's data is securely maintained and strictly confidential. 2018 Survey Reports will be available at the end of September. To whet your appetite for the valuable information we provide, check out our 2017 Survey Reports below.
