Here’s What You Need to Know About the Radford Platform in August

With the second half of the year well underway, we are excited to provide a Radford platform update, including upcoming market practice study deadlines and a reminder, for those eligible, to join two private market studies closing this week! We are also happy to share an exciting new video highlighting our Location Analytics tool. Let’s get started…

August 2022 Highlights

Here are a few highlights to be aware of right now:

  • Log in to Access Our July Publication! We want to remind you that our July publication of the Radford Global Compensation Database, the first quarterly publication of the 2022-2023 survey cycle, is live! For more on this publication, please read our latest publication release note, and learn about the latest platform enhancements.
  • Data Collection for the Radford Global Compensation Database is Still Open; If you have submitted already, thank you! If you have not, as a reminder input materials are live, and if you are your company’s primary contact, you should have received submission details.

Important Update on Russia Data

We would like to make you aware that we have decided to not publish market data for the Russia market starting with the 2022-2023 July publication, and until further notice. This decision was not made lightly. The combination of the evolving sanctions environment and decisions being made by international firms regarding their continued operations in Russia - against the backdrop of the ongoing situation in Russia and Ukraine — has created an uncertain business, HR and compensation environment, which means we would be unable to guarantee the quality of data. If you are a client that will be directly impacted by this decision, your sales account manager will be following up with you shortly to discuss your options.

Your Checklist

We invite you to maximize your partnership with us by joining one or more of the following market practice studies that are open for participation. If you haven’t submitted your data, please do by the submission due dates in order to receive complimentary results:

  • The Car Policies Survey and Paid Time-Off Survey are open. Submissions are due by Oct. 14.
  • The Sales Incentive Practices Study has been extended due to popular demand. Final submissions are due by November 15.
  • The Intern/New Graduate Survey and Pay Administration Survey are open. Submission due dates are shown on the Radford Network.
  • The Short- and Long-Term Incentive Design Study is open. Submission due dates are shown on the Radford Network.
Simply visit your survey input page to find up-to-date compensation data and market practice study submission windows and to check in on your participation status.

To access market practice study results for which you’re eligible, including the Intern, New Graduate Study and Pay Administration Study, please log into the Radford Network® with your credentials and once on the homepage, click on the Data tab in the navigation bar and select Market Practices.

Training Resources and Support

Following the release of our July publication, we have a number of new resources for you to access – like information on our new Location Analytics tool, including this detailed video with everything you need to know to use this tool, handy information on what happens to peer groups after a new survey year starts as well as following a quarterly data publication, and more. You can bookmark our Radford Network Knowledge Base to easily access it at any time to search for input and output resources, network tools and training videos.

In addition, we have rolled out a number of special, live 30-minute client webinars designed with you in mind — on a range of topics such as a helpful overview of key July release updates, a rundown on everything you need to know about our Location Analytics tool (you won’t want to miss this!), as well as a session covering peer group expiration. You can register for one or more of these sessions on the Radford Network Resources Tab.

As always, don’t hesitate to contact your survey consultant, with any questions about the Radford Network or the Radford Global Compensation Database.
