Salary.com signed a reseller agreement with Mercer, the global HR consulting and asset management firm. Under the agreement, Mercer surveys will become available to Salary.com’s 8,000 survey and B2B software subscribers.
Kevin Plunkett, Salary.com’s vice president of partnerships, said increasing demands for wage transparency, coupled with the tight labor market, have made it imperative for employers to “get pay right.” The partnership between Salary.com and Mercer allows customers to manage surveys through a single vendor and use multiple sources to reduce survey gaps.New Agreement Brings Mercer Surveys to Salary.com Customers #HRTech Click To Tweet
Mercer’s data joins Salary.com’s survey portfolio, which includes Compdata and IPAS and totals more than 100 surveys across industries and functional areas. The partnership also gives Salary.com customers access to more than 90 Mercer U.S. and Canadian surveys across a variety of industries.
Customers can also combine Mercer survey data with Salary.com’s CompAnalyst Enterprise platform to simplify survey management, create market composites based on survey cuts from CompAnalyst Market Data, Compdata, IPAS and Mercer surveys, and match and price multiple jobs, job families and entire surveys across multiple job locations, Salary.com said.
In November, data from Mercer Compensation Benchmarks became available on Lattice through the company’s Compensation product.
Launched in July 22, Lattice Compensation connects performance and compensation as a way to drive strategies and transparency around pay decisions. Lattice said its alliance with Mercer represents “a natural evolution” through its offering of improved efficiency, clarity and ease of use.
Like Mercer and Salary.com, Lattice believes a number of converging factors, including the shifting labor market and legislative changes, are driving a significant shift in employee expectations around compensation transparency. In October, Salary.com received a “significant” equity investment from Accel-KKR, a technology-focused private equity firm. At the time, the firms said Accel-KKR offered resources and domain expertise in SaaS technology and HCM to support expanded product offerings to Salary.com.
