The EA offers two types of surveys to its members:

Those which have results that are free to all members and those which have results that are free only to those members who participate.
To assure you are getting the most value out of your membership we encourage you to participate in these surveys. Participation will ensure that you will receive these results free of charge!
Our surveys are very thorough and will prove valuable when questions arise, updating is needed, or when change occurs within your organization. You will find a calendar of when each survey is conducted and when the results are released below.
For more information, or to participate in a survey, contact HR Solutions Coordinator, Drew Peterson.
