Results Available for Toy Industry Compensation and Benefits Report

2012 Toy Industry Compensation and Benefits Survey

July 16, 2012 | The Toy Industry Association (TIA), in conjunction with the research firm Industry Insights, is pleased to announce that the final results of the 2012 Toy Industry Compensation and Benefits Survey are now freely available for TIA members. Non-members may purchase the results for $695.

The first toy industry survey on compensation levels and companywide benefits packages to be conducted since 2002-2003, data was collected on more than 70 toy industry position titles in the United States and Canada.  Participants included more than 50 TIA member companies – public and private as well as small, mid-size and large organizations – directly engaged in the manufacture, importing and distribution of toys.

The results package includes:

  • Final industry-wide report (.pdf format): Comparative compensation and benefits information based on all respondents, gross revenue, gross domestic revenue, region, number of FTEs, plus additional data breaks.

  • Online searchable results tool: 24-7 access to a web-based resource that allows users to drill deeper into the data and use multiple filters to custom tailor results to match company-specific circumstances (e.g., size, location, etc.). Custom reports can be downloaded as an Excel, Word or PDF document.

TIA member organizations that participated in the study will also receive complimentary access to a unique Company Compensation Report (CCR) (.pdf format) that positions a company’s individual reported figures (based on responses to the survey) alongside the appropriate industry comparatives.

One User ID and Password to access the final report and online tool will be provided free of charge to each TIA regular member directly engaged in the manufacture, importing and distribution of toys.* All access requests must be submitted to TIA at; all IDs and passwords will be assigned via e-mail. IDs and passwords will be assigned only to a senior executive (e.g., President, CEO, COO) or his/her HR designee. Once assigned, credentials may be shared within an organization. Non-members of TIA may purchase a copy of the results plus access to the searchable results tool for $695.

*Complimentary copies are not provided for TIA Associate Members, or for Regular Members in the retailer, licensor or inventor/designer, or manufacturer sales representative categories.
