Given evolving consumer viewing behaviors and industry consolidation, compensation practices in the digital, media and entertainment industry are dynamic and ever-changing. Digital supremacy is driving the creation of new job families and driving up salaries, bonuses and long-term incentives (LTIs) across the employment market. To compete in this intense war for talent, content developers rely upon C2HR’s Annual Compensation Surveys to provide industry-specific benchmarks on pay, amenities and a wide range of compensation factors for 737 positions at all levels in functions such as general management, programming, creative production, technical production, post production, remote operations, library, affiliate and media relations, community affairs, market research, digital distribution, advertising sales, affiliate advertising sales, advertising sales operations, legal and business affairs and G&A.
Forty two (42) companies — representing approximately 34,394 employees — are using the 2022 C2HR Survey data to understand salary differentials to benchmark compensation; to establish job architecture, rational pay levels and pay structures; and to make informed decisions about bonus plans and equity plans. Participant companies include five national broadcast networks, 155 cable networks and 19 streaming services, as well as companies who create content.
