“WIN Technology uses the survey data to complete our organization-wide salary banding.  In many instances, to remain competitive with local larger markets, we have to use an average of pay information for both MN & WI to establish 25/50/75 percentiles for our employees. This survey gives us that information.” - Kevin, WIN  Technology
