The 2023 edition of Ragan’s Salary and Workplace Culture Survey asked nearly 600 communicators across generational, gender, regional and industry demographics to weigh in on their pay and benefits. The results, available exclusively to Ragan Insider, Communications Leadership Council and PR Daily Pro members, highlight mixed job satisfaction. Just over half of all respondents (52%) said they plan to or might change jobs over the next year, a notable number considering 79% of respondents have remained with their current employer over the past 12 months.

Asked about their primary motivator for changing jobs, 36% cited more compensation.

Roughly a quarter (24%) said they were dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with their current compensation.
