2019 SIOP Income Survey - Deadline extended to 21 October


Dear members of the EAWOP, below is a communication on behalf of SIOP: an invitation to participate in SIOP's renowned salary survey.

What is the salary survey and what is its purpose?
For over 30 years, SIOP has conducted a triennial salary survey to gauge the income and employment of its members. The results are consistently provided in a detailed report accessible to members (e.g., Poteet, Parker, Herman, DuVernet, & Conley, 2017) and are often the subject of additional publications (e.g., Parker, Wiggins, Richard, Wright, Davison, & DuVernet, 2018). These reports summarize findings designed to understand the factors that impact income, including highest degree obtained, tenure, and employment sector (e.g., academic vs. practitioner, internal vs. external practitioner, etc.) as well as other demographic variables (e.g., gender, age, geographic location). By tracking average income levels for both membership as a whole and subcategories of  membership, the society provides a valuable benchmark for members to understand their own market value as they progress in their careers. The research also helps to understand the drivers of income differences, as well as the career outlook for the field of I-O Psychology. Past surveys have identified highest degree obtained, years of experience, area of employment, industry, gender, and age as significant factors impacting income. The continuation of these efforts also provide evidence of compensation and employment trends over time.

How long will it take me?
Approximately 15-30 minutes. The survey asks about your employment for 2018, so it may help you prepare to have your employment records from that year.

Am I eligible to participate and how do I access the survey?
If you are a current SIOP member who has paid dues for this year, you should have received an email from Eden King with an invitation to participate using the personal link she provided. This is not applicable to students and is targeted towards members who are currently employed.

Who will see my information?
The survey is being administered by a third party who is not associated with the Salary Survey Subcommittee. All results will be analyzed and aggregated by the third party before being shared with the subcommittee, so we will only see results in aggregate form. We will not report on any results with a sample size under 10.

When and where can I see the results?
We anticipate aggregated results to be reported to SIOP membership in early 2020. There will be a TIP article and other publications widely available for SIOP membership (see the SIOP website for reports on previous salary survey administrations: We have also submitted a session to be presented at SIOP that will report on our findings.
