Since 2001, Cheyene Marling, Firestorm EVP of People Solutions and Program Analytics, has gathered data on business continuity management programs and compensations to provide professionals with the information they need to elevate their programs. Each year, Cheyene and her team strive to improve upon study questions, distribution of the study and reporting of the data collected.

Now in its 16th year, the BCM Compensation Study is globally recognized as the premier compensation assessment for Business Continuity and Resiliency professionals.

The study assesses participant’s earning potential by years of experience, degree, years of management and leadership expertise, geography and certification, among other criteria. The 16th annual study is now open to professionals. All participants will receive a complimentary copy of the report.

Collected and presented in the 15th annual study (published last year) was the average total compensation by discipline. The graph (FTE Average Total Compensation by Discipline Experience – USA) highlights the average total compensation for those who indicated each discipline category, as well as the percent of study respondents who indicated expertise in each discipline. For example, 39% of the study respondents noted audit expertise with an average total compensation of $138,625.

The average total compensation by each individual discipline (listed on the left-hand side of chart 1) is assessed in the report. The findings also cover average total compensation by years of audit expertise to health and safety, as well as high availability to risk management.

Regardless of discipline expertise, data findings overall mirrored trends from previous years. In many of the data charts, there is a gradual increase in average total compensation up to the 21-25 years’ experience group and then a decline for respondents in the 26+ years’ category.
