Compensation Survey

Employee retention is an important issue for everyone’s business? RCA periodically conducts a compensation and benefits survey of its member companies. Those who participate benefit from having a fresh perspective of compensation standards in retail construction.

Compensation is a critically important component in retention strategy. RCA's compensation survey is a great tool for evaluating how your pay and benefits compare to other companies specifically performing retail construction. Other sources of information are not as directly comparable to our retail contractor-based membership. All member companies have an opportunity to participate in the RCA survey and participating companies will receive the results of the survey free of charge.

The confidentially of each respondent company's data is well protected. No company identification is contained in the survey results. RCA's directors, officers and members do not have access to the returned surveys and the originals are destroyed following compilation of the data.

The survey is conducted every three years; the last survey was conducted in 2017. If you participated in the survey and need a copy of the report, contact [email protected]
