PolicyCentral is available FREE of charge, whether or not you participate in our compensation surveys. 



PolicyCentral is our FREE online service that collects and analyzes compensation and benefits related policy and practice information.

Once you submit your policy information into PolicyCentral, you only need to review and update your changes annually. All of your previous data is retained for modification. If you participate in multiple WMG compensation surveys, you only need to enter/update each PolicyCentral topic once annually. Once your data is in, updating it is a breeze.

Custom Reporting

You can customize your PolicyCentral reports by selecting specific companies, business segments, geographic areas, and more. You can also receive reports in colorful graphics as well as tabular format – all free of charge. 

The confidentiality of your data is protected, as no PolicyCentral report will display results unless at least 5 organizations are represented on any topic report.
