REDW Announces Its 2016 Tribal Government Compensation Survey is Now Open

Participating Tribes May Be Eligible to Win a Valuable Prize

REDW LLC, one of the Southwest’s largest and most respected certified public accounting and business consulting firms—and a leading national provider of services to Native American tribes—is pleased to announce the launch of its sixth annual Tribal Government Compensation Survey, now open at http://tribalgovcompsurvey.redw.com.

Developed in collaboration with the National Native American Human Resources Association (NNAHRA), REDW’s Tribal Government Compensation Survey provides valuable benchmarking data necessary to help tribes make fair and competitive compensation decisions. Built upon a robust, web-based platform with dynamic reporting functionality, the Survey allows participating tribes to quickly and easily input their tribe’s salary and benefits information online, compare and filter data, and prepare on-demand reports for hundreds of positions, all within a secure and confidential environment.

“In today’s competitive labor market, having access to meaningful and reliable compensation data enables tribes to attract and retain top talent, which is essential for helping their communities thrive,” explained REDW Principal Lisa Wilcox, who heads the project and the Firm’s HR Consulting practice. “Of course, the Survey can only succeed in providing an accurate picture of tribal compensation with the help of the tribes themselves,” she added. “Basically, the more who participate, the better the data, and the greater the benefit to everyone.”

Data Collection for the 2016 Survey opened February 1, 2016 and will remain open through the end of the year. The Survey’s Comparison, Filtering and Reporting features will be available for purchase by August 15, 2016 and an Annual Summary Report will be available September 15, 2016, to reflect data entered through that date. REDW also plans to hold an informational webinar on May 19, 2016, detailing the types of valuable data tribes can glean from the Survey.

You can register and begin entering data at no cost to you, and those who contribute their tribe’s compensation data to the Survey can take advantage of its filtering, comparison and reporting features at a much lower fee. To facilitate participation, REDW also offers data input services. As an added incentive in 2016, all registered Survey users are entered in a drawing to win a $400 Apple® gift card; to be eligible, the data must include information for at least 50 positions. REDW will announce the winner of the drawing at the end of September 2016.
