Be aware that ERI salary budget projections will always differ from others' because (a) our evergreen survey is continually updated, (b) we adjust for employer size (because we found after 9/11 a major bifurcation in pay practices between different-sized enterprises) and (c) we further adjust volunteered plans to reflect the influence of the current-trending economic factors that alter what management committees permit their HR/Comp people to actually disburse out of their initial recommendations.

We have found there are two kinds of budget report projections: what people initially propose to do and what they will actually do. Some report the former, but we try to report the latter.


Thanks for weighing in and providing the additional clarification.
