C2HR Surveys Reveal Compassionate
 Actions Across Industry

Throughout the pandemic, employers worked to protect employees’ safety as well as their pay. C2HR’s 2020 Compensation Surveys collected data from 50 companies for 173,000 incumbents and more than 600 job titles to provide valuable insight into the impact on salaries, incentives and more. Throughout this tumultuous year, survey participants established salary floors, reduced executive pay, offered additional paid time off, extended healthcare benefits, and awarded stipends. They undertook these innovative actions to help their employees and companies survive the crisis.

Individuals in jobs supporting the launch of streaming services garnered even larger increases. Senior engineering and technology positions at connectivity providers continued their multiyear compensation increases.
