Learn How Consultants Are Faring in Today’s Economy: Participate in the 8th Annual WIC Compensation Survey

Every year, Women in Consulting (WIC) conducts its compensation survey. And every year, we get rave reviews about how this survey helps consultants benchmark their individual practices against those of the most successful consultants. Not only do the results inspire participants to do something a little different to grow their businesses further, but local and industry news sources track the annual results as well.

This year, the economy is on everyone’s mind. Whether your business continues to expand in spite of — or because of — the economy, or you’re noticing a slowdown, or you’re moving at the same pace as last year, we’d like to hear about your experience. The survey closes on May 11, 2009.

Participate in the 8th Annual WIC Compensation Survey

Survey Details

The survey takes about 10 – 15 minutes to complete. To thank you for your time, all participants who complete the survey (whether or not they’re WIC members) will receive the survey results and be entered in a drawing to win one of five prizes: 

  • A seat in any future WIC workshop or seminar (one winner)
  • A set in a future WIC webinar (four winners)

The survey asks some detailed questions about your business, so have the following information handy for the May 2008 – April 2009 timeframe when starting the survey:

  • Total revenue for the past 12 months
  • Avery hourly rate (if applicable)
  • Average retainer fee (if applicable)
  • Average project fee (if applicable)
  • Number of subcontractors used
  • Total amount paid to subcontractors and/or employees

If you’re affiliated with WIC in anyway, the survey also asks a few questions to help us understand how WIC can help you with your business and how you rate the benefits of being part of WIC. We use this data to guide our decision making to ensure we’re doing the things that will provide the most support for our members and their businesses. (If you’re not affiliated with WIC, you’ll automatically skip these questions.)

We’ll present the results at the WIC members-only meeting on Thursday, June 18th. Nonmembers will receive the survey results after the survey closes, providing they submit an email address when completing the survey.

Please feel free to pass along this survey to any fellow consultant. The more people who complete the survey, the better results we all receive.

Thanks in advance for participating! We appreciate your time and value your input.
