Who We Are

CAI is a membership organization emphasizing long-term relationships with North Carolina employers. It’s not about invoices, consulting models or long engagements.

We want to help you create the best workplace for your employees and we’ll do that anyway you want. It may simply be telephone advice from our HR experts to prevent or minimize an employee problem. It could be training at one of our scheduled sessions on a wide-range of management and HR skills. It could be a site visit from one of our HR pros to accomplish a long-needed project or pay plan. Or you may just need the data we collect in nearly a dozen annual surveys of area employer pay practices, benefits policies and health care costs. We are here to play the role that is right for your company right now.

Membership Benefits

CAI members have online access to critical news, information, research and advice.  You’ll find much of that here.  You’ll also find additional details on services that will help you maximize the benefits of membership within your organization.

CAI Surveys

One of the most popular benefits of CAI membership is access to our comprehensive survey reports.

Taking part in CAI surveys is a member privilege and is strongly encouraged.  We send requests for participation for each survey at the start of data collection. The submission of data by members is a win-win, especially when done regularly. Data integrity enhances with increased participation, and participating members receive electronic survey results at no charge. Nonparticipating members receive significant discounts on all surveys, including co-sponsored reports.  All members have free electronic access to our annual Holiday Survey.

About Pay & Benefits Surveys

Not only do we conduct our own surveys, but we also co-sponsor specialized surveys with fellow leading Employer Association Groups (EAGs) across the nation.  All surveys sponsored/co-sponsored by CAI provide various cuts of data and multiple descriptive measures, offering a full and comprehensive perspective for the user.

Participate in OPEN Surveys

You are encouraged to participate in our surveys.  Members who participate in CAI surveys have free electronic access to the results.

Purchase Surveys
