The 2013 Starting Wages and Benefits Survey is now underway...
Don't delay - Survey responses are due by August 16, 2013.
The Regional Chamber invites your company to participate in the survey.
Not Just Another Survey....
While other surveys report average wage information, this document provides valuable starting wage information – an indispensable economic development tool!
To provide this data, we need your help.
Every two years, employers in the Mahoning Valley are contacted and asked about starting wages for various positions within their company. Link information to our online survey will be distributed her by mail or by email to more than 5,000 area businesses.
This year’s questionnaire features a broad range of occupations and is open to a wider scope of businesses and industries. Occupations were selected based on interest to industries that are the focus of our business attraction efforts and projected job or industry growth.
Employers are asked to only provide information as applicable within their company. The survey consists of two sections:
- The first section asks for details regarding company contact, size, hiring practices and benefits offered.
- The second section lists individual job titles and offers a place to enter either the starting hourly wage or the starting annual wage.
Please fill in data for all benefits and positions within your company.
The completed report will be made available to all those who participate. We will report only aggregate results and no individual company names or data will be released. All individual questionnaire information will be kept strictly confidential.
