Share Article

The NAPCP's Global Commercial Card Salary Survey focuses on compensation and staffing trends and hiring qualifications for end-users in the Commercial Card and Payments industry. The deadline to participate is Feb. 12, 2020.

The Commercial Card industry's only compensation survey is open through Feb. 12, 2020.

The NAPCP's community of almost 20,000 Commercial Card and Payments professionals looks to the NAPCP for guidance in structuring compensation, understanding staffing preferences, and knowing what forces impact salary determination.

The NAPCP has launched the 2020 Global Commercial Card Salary Survey, which is open to end-users working in the Commercial Card industry (P-Cards, Travel Cards, One Cards and ePayables). This is the industry’s only compensation and staffing survey, and delivers critical data to a niche market of business-to-business payment professionals. The project captures and delivers insight into the industry’s compensation and staffing trends, and identifies attributes that impact salary.

The results report, to be published in May 2020 and completed in partnership with one of the industry’s leading research organizations, RPMG Research Corporation, will benchmark compensation data for professionals who share similar traits, summarize the skills/experience that hiring organizations prefer, and offer insight into P-Card and Travel Card program staffing trends. The results will include segmented data by geography (e.g., U.S., Canada, EMEA, Latin America, Asia Pacific and other) and sector (e.g., corporate, higher education, government/K-12, and travel).

The results of the survey provide data that helps industry end-users negotiate salaries, promotions and bonuses, and make educated decisions about employment offers. The best practices revealed in the results provide support when approaching management for additional departmental resources, evaluation of job duties or support for continuing education.

From the employer side, the survey results provide hiring professionals with data related to competitive compensation and preferred experience and skills for program managers, administrators and support staff. Adhering to compensation best practices in the industry can attract a larger pool of qualified applicants, decrease employee turnover, and help retain the institutional history and expertise of long-time and valued employees.

“The NAPCP's community of almost 20,000 Commercial Card and Payments professionals looks to the NAPCP for guidance in structuring compensation, understanding staffing preferences, and knowing what forces impact salary determination,” said Diane McGuire, CPCP, MBA, NAPCP Managing Director. “Industry end-users are encouraged to participate in this project, which ultimately is mutually beneficial to individual respondents and the industry at large.”

The survey is open on the NAPCP website until Feb. 12, 2020. Individuals are required to become a complimentary subscriber to the NAPCP website then sign in to complete the survey. The only way to receive a complimentary copy of the results report is to participate. The survey takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, and respondents will receive .5 points towards CPCP certification.
