However, compensation analysis can also tell a very interesting story and provide insight into broader trends. Hiring priorities, salary increases, changes in leadership; these aspects directly relay what kind of jobs are becoming a necessity, what departments are growing, and what backgrounds and educations are becoming imperative to the association workforce.
