Employee Experience Study

How we work, where we work, and what we expect from work are in flux. The pressure is now squarely on business and human resources leaders to respond and reimagine the modern workplace. Everything — from culture to benefits to values — is on the table, which is we provide Radford Global Compensation Database participants with access to this incredibly important annual study.

Covered Practices

Our Employee Experience Study covers the following key market practices:

  • Community action and connection
  • Diversity, equity and inclusion policies and practices
  • Employee recognition programs
  • Gift-matching programs
  • Perquisites for executives and employees
  • Retention and referral bonus plans
  • Talent mobility and flexible-working policies
  • Training and education programs
  • Workplace culture


Our Employee Experience Study is conducted once per year with the following general schedule:

  • Data collection opens — March 2021
  • Data collection closes — August 2021
  • Results published — November 2021


Results for the Employee Experience Study are provided in a PDF format, and separate reports are created for U.S. and global practices. All global reports include data for as many countries as possible where there is sufficient information to publish results.


Access to the Employee Experience Study is limited to Radford Global Compensation Database participants. All clients are automatically invited to submit data once a year via an online questionnaire posted on the Radford Network®. To check on your company's submission status, visit the input page on the Radford Network and look for the "Employee Experience" information tile.


All Radford Global Compensation Database participants who provide a complete and timely submission to the Employee Experience Study will receive a complimentary copy of overall study results at the time of publication. Custom industry or peer group reports can be purchased separately for $500 each.

Please note, access to results will align to the completeness of your submission. If you submit data for the U.S. only, you will receive U.S. results. If you submit data for all countries where you operate, you will receive full global results.

Radford Global Compensation Database participants who do not submit information to this study can purchase overall study results for a fee at the time of publication.
