Salary Survey Extra is a series of periodic dispatches that give added insight into the findings of our most recent Salary Survey. These posts contain previously unpublished Salary Survey data.
So we tried something new with the 2019 Salary Survey. To encourage participation in the survey — and also make a gesture that represents the gratitude we feel toward everyone who does, in fact, participate — we introduced a modest incentive. For the first time this year, we are distributing $50 Amazon gift cards to 10 randomly chosen individuals who took and completed the survey.
It’s not necessarily difficult to complete an online survey, but it does take time and patience. We know that the survey isn’t perfect, and that it can feel cold and impersonal. We tweak things every year in our ongoing quest to provide a better experience. In the end, however, all we can really do is set the table and pass out invitations. We can’t control whether anyone actually comes to dinner.
So it’s always a relief when the responses start to trickle in, then pour in, and maybe even flood in for at least a couple of weeks somewhere in the middle. We really appreciate everyone who contributes. We’d give you all a $50 Amazon gift card if we could.
Each of our 10 winners will be contacted with the option to receive their gift card redeemable either directly via Amazon.com or via one of its international storefronts. Without further ado, our 10 randomly chosen Amazon gift card recipients are:
Adewumi Olatunji (Nigeria)
Evan Summerville (United States)
Gavin Wiltshire (United Kingdom)
Fernanado Sausedo (Paraguay)
Javeed Shaik (Canada)
Kate Devlin (United States)
Mel Comerford (Australia)
Sona Berzinska (Czech Republic)
Srinivas Velamuri (United States)
Yolanda Varela (United States)
Thanks again to everyone who participated! We sincerely hope to work with you again on next year’s Salary Survey.
