Compensation Planning


Sponsored by:

New this year, NAMIC is partnered with Ward Group, the leading provider of benchmarking services for Property & Casualty companies, to conduct the survey and analyze the results, thus allowing us to combine our two past surveys into one survey encompassing both salary and executive compensation areas. The survey will be launched on March 13 with reports available by the end of August 2014.


The ability to understand your competitive pay market is key to ensuring that your firm’s pay is aligned with performance. With the Ward Group’s survey, participants can leverage pay data covering more than 1,500 roles ranging from executive positions down to entry-level support roles, with data broken out by geographic region, firm size, and firm type (mutual versus non-mutual). Results can be combined with the firm's operational and financial benchmarks to help companies assess their pay levels; understand compensation relative to performance; and develop competitive compensation plans. Participants can also compare their compensation practices against customized benchmark groups, including top industry performers.


Survey coverage includes competitive benchmark compensation data for property/casualty positions as well as infrastructure positions that support the insurance business. Pay data elements include:

       • Prior year and current year base salary
       • Target and actual annual cash incentive
       • Target and actual total cash
       • Long-term/deferred awards
       • Total compensation


March 13 – Data Collection Materials Distributed
May 8 – Data Collection Due
End of August – Survey Results Delivered

NAMIC’s 2013 Executive Compensation Study

Sponsored by:

In 2012 and 2013 NAMIC partnered with Total Compensation Solutions to conduct the survey and analyze the results. The study examines the top positions in a company, reviewing various aspects of executive compensation including long-term incentive plans, perquisites, benefits, bonus structures and incentives, paid time off, and supplemental retirement benefits. We have added four new positions to the survey and expanded questions in the general information category on topics such as turnover, salary budgets, and work-life balance. Customized reports comparing a participating company to all participants were provided as well as the opportunity to discuss results with TCS and peer comparisons with Jacobson Group, NAMIC’s corporate sponsor of the study.
