 Open Surveys


Benchmarking the Accounting & Finance Function Survey


Is Your Accounting & Finance Function as Efficient as Your Peers?


FERF, in collaboration with Robert Half, has launched the 8th annual Benchmarking the Accounting & Finance Function Survey. Your company’s participation in this important survey willprovide valuable data for fellow FEI members, regulators, press and document current trends in finance. The survey should take less than 15 minutes to complete. We ask for your e-mail address to avoid compiling duplicate responses from the same company. All responses are confidential and participants will remain anonymous.



Financial Executive Compensation Survey


How Does Your and Your Staff’s Total Compensation Package Stack Up Against Your Peers?


FERF, in partnership with Grant Thornton, is launching the 10th annual Financial Executive Compensation Survey which will provide benchmarking information on participants’ total direct compensation packages, along with other benefits. This survey is completed by senior-level financial executives, just like you, rather than by human resources or executive search firm executives.



Technology Issue for Financial Executives Survey

Are You Getting Enough Value from Your IT Investments?
FERF, in collaboration with FEI’s Committee on Finance & IT (CFIT) and Gartner, will be launching the 17th annual Technology Issues for Financial Executives survey.  We do this survey each year to get your perspective on how the finance function uses IT. 


FERF surveys FEI members annually on Audit Fees, Executive Compensation, Financial Operations, Goodwill Impairment and Technology Issues. Other surveys are done on timely and relevant topics, such as health care, financing, and XBRL tagging.
Our goal is to get FEI members to share useful information with their peers, because the more members participate, the better information we all have to work with.
We always welcome your suggestions on how to provide better information more efficiently. Please let us know if there are other topics on which you would like us to survey members by contacting Bill Sinnett, Senior Director of Research, at or 973-765-1004.
