Survey Planning Meeting at The Walt Disney Studios

As global consumers show a growing appetite for engaging, high-definition visual experience and moviegoers demand high-quality production, animation and visual effects jobs are at the forefront of today’s entertainment industry.  Animators and visual effects artists are producing content consumed not only in theaters and on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, but also on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook.

The 2020 Croner Animation and Visual Effects Survey provides up-to-date competitive compensation information about positions in companies that produce animated feature films or develop animation and/or visual effects across devices and platforms.

This year’s Survey will be launched on Thursday, February 13, 2020, when long-time and new survey participant companies gather together to plan for Survey content at The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.  This annual Survey Planning Meeting with compensation and human resources executives from participating companies ensures that the Survey, conducted annually by The Croner Company, remains fresh and relevant to the current labor market.

The planning meeting will include:

  • Presentation by CEO Hali Croner sharing the latest compensation and benefits trends in the industry.
  • Determination of the positions to be included to keep the Survey relevant.
  • Roundtable discussion of current challenges and hot topics for the industry HR professionals.

In 2019, 18 companies, representing approximately 6,000 U.S. and 1,500 Canadian employees, participated in the Croner Survey.  These companies use the Survey to gain ready insight into trends, to create rational pay plans and to stay well informed about going market rates for new hires, promotions, bonuses and talent retention.
