The 2008 – 2009 survey questionnaire can be found at www.knowledgebank.us.com. Respondents can either complete the survey on-line or download a copy for subsequent completion via mail/fax submission. Participants will receive a FREE copy of the results. The deadline for responses is Friday, October 3rd.

In addition, the summary report to be published in November will include salary adjustment, annual and equity incentive plan, human resource practice, and employee benefit plan prevalence data. To participate, firms must have more than two employees and provide pay data matches for at least two of the 30 jobs. Your company’s responses will be kept strictly confidential and will not be shared with any other organization.

Non-participating technology firms can purchase the survey results for $400.

The 2008 – 2009 survey is co-sponsored by regional technology councils and other membership-based organizations that serve technology firms in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and West Virginia. Last year 110 firms participated, with median revenue of $5.1 million and 37 employees. In 2008 – 2009 we are expecting a significant increase in the number of participating companies as we have added many new co-sponsors throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
