SGA’s 2012 Human Resources & Corporate Recruiting Compensation Survey

Am I being paid what I am worth?


How do I stack up to my peers?


As Human Resources and Recruiting professionals, it is understood that we must be aware of the salary ranges and restrictions put on positions and levels we are responsible for! While at the same time, we may often neglect to understand our own worth and how well we fare within our own functional areas as it relates to our peers.

Today, Sheila Greco Associates released the 2012 Human Resources & Corporate Recruiting  Compensation Survey.

As compilers of information we recently interviewed over 210 human resources and recruiting professionals to ensure the accuracy of the report. Salaries may vary depending upon industry, location and experience.

Corporate Recruiters:

Corporate Recruiter – $40,000- $70,000. The main differential is the number of years of experience. *Consulting and Financial Services Industries have paid recruiters as high as $120,000.

Corporate Recruiter/Talent Acquisition Manager –  $50,000- $120,000. Many interviewed stated that this level was hit the hardest with decreases over the last few years.

Director of Recruiting/ Talent Acquisition Director – $75,000- $175,000. The Director Title is found many times  in larger organizations.

Recruiting Leader/Talent Acquisition Leader /Vice President level –  $135,000-$300,000 (above the director level). Huge range but none the less there were about 7% of those interviewed right around the $300,000 level.

Human Resources:

Human Resources Manager – $40,000 -$77,000.

Human Resources Director – $60,000 (very few)- $130,000. There were a few earning $150,000. Most were at large organizations.

Human Resources Vice President – $105,000- $170,000. Please note 11% were around the $200,000 range.

Chief Human Resources Leader/Senior (Executive) Vice President – $180,000-$250,000. This is just salary it is not total compensation. There are a few professionals earning a base of $325,000 and beyond. Not many but some.
