  • Compensation & Benefits and Workforce Analysis Benchmarking
    The heartbeat of every club is its staff. Payroll is also the club’s largest single expense and it is often a magnet for scrutiny from members. Precise and accurate assessment of your compensation practices using reliable market data provides the insight you need to achieve balance between financial results and member service expectations. Our database of compensation and benefits for nearly 100,000 club employees is growing every day and our lofty goal is to pursue gathering the latest compensation data for every single staff member in the industry so our customers have access to the most accurate and reliable data available.
