Your guide to compensation policy and remuneration strategy

Mercer’s Total Remuneration Survey categorizes compensation data into five simple components for efficient resource planning:
  1. Base salary
    Monthly base salary times the number of months guaranteed
  2. Total guaranteed cash compensation
    Base salary plus the annualized value of guaranteed allowances
  3. Total cash compensation
    Total guaranteed cash compensation plus the annualized value of short-term incentive, sales incentive, profit sharing or other incentive awards
  4. Total direct compensation
    Total cash compensation plus the annualized value of any long-term incentive awards, valued using Black-Scholes methodology for appreciation-based awards
  5. Total remuneration
    Total direct compensation plus the annualized value of benefits
