Compensation & Benefit Survey - deadline extended


The Compensation and Benefit survey is underway. The survey is completed by the independent research firm, Industry Insights, and is completely confidential. This is the only report that is specific to the compensation and benefits policies in the Rental Industry.
We need your help! To make the 2016 Compensation and Benefits Report viable to you, we need input from Canadian rental operations of all sizes and inventory mixes. Your participation in the current survey is essential to making this report accurately reflect the industry standards in Canada regarding compensation and benefit offerings — all of which is information that you cannot find anywhere else.
To see a sample of the information you will receive, visit
The participation deadline has been extended to October 25th so there is still time to take part and receive your free report.

  • Free 2016 Compensation and Benefits Report — an interactive online tool that can be customized to your criteria — $175 value
  • Free customized, individual Company Compensation Report — Available only to those who participate in the survey
