Vacation Just for Taking Survey
An integral part of National Payroll Week® (NPW), the "Getting Paid In America" survey covers a variety of payroll and financial topics in order to provide a glimpse into the way Americans get paid. Each survey participant is automatically entered in a drawing for a free paycheck and a trip for two to Las Vegas.
Taking the survey to enter the drawing is only half the fun. Promoting the "Getting Paid In America" survey to your family, friends, and colleagues is a great way to spread the word about NPW. Each year, APA holds an NPW Online Survey Promotion Contest to showcase the outstanding efforts of an individual who increases the recognition of NPW and the NPW survey within his or her workplace and community.
Enter the drawing for your chance to win a free paycheck and a free vacation, and don't forget to share the survey with your family, friends, and co-workers!
