We value the current information GGA provides on compensation trends, especially the fact that we can benchmark multiple roles at the Executive and Corporate levels against our direct market competitors. We appreciate the approach to including relatable and comparable positions which can often be tough to otherwise find in the marketplace. Ultimately, GGA’s work has helped ensure that our professionals’ compensation is competitive and fair for our employees.
