Total Rewards Professionals' Career Development Survey


As the global, nonprofit association for total rewards professionals, WorldatWork has several unique abilities and responsibilities. The association’s mission statement acknowledges a simple but primary responsibility: “to advance the knowledge and careers of total rewards professionals…” WorldatWork fulfills this responsibility many different ways, including publishing studies, such as this one, that attempt to inform and educate professionals about their chosen career.

Survey Results

This report summarizes the results of an electronic survey conducted in January and February 2013. Invitations were sent via email to a random sample of 4,809 WorldatWork members. The survey closed with more than 800 responses and an 18% response rate overall; slightly higher than typical response for our surveys. The demographics of the sample and respondents are similar to the association’s membership as a whole: the average member works at the managerial level or higher in the headquarters of a large company in North America.
