SPOTLIGHT ON AssOCiAtiOn nEws MHEDA Conducts Two Benchmarking Surveys in 2014 Employee Compensation Survey: January 1 through February 15 Profit Planning Group will once again complete The Employee Compensation Report in 2014. It is an ideal resource to gauge current salary and benefit practices considering the dramatic changes in market conditions. The final report provides detailed reviews of distributor executive and employee compensation and benefit programs including salaries, bonuses and perks. Also included is a Cross Industry Report which compares compensation levels from approximately 25 other organizations in the distribution industry. This is a free distributor member benefit and results are always complimentary to those who participate. DiSC Survey: February 1 through March 7 Currie Management Consultants, Inc. will be completing the full Industry Report and the Individual Reports once again. There are more exciting changes to the DiSC Report in 2014, across all participating industries. The Industrial Truck Survey format has been updated with improvements to the template, which will enable Currie to further track, analyze and report the information that is most important to businesses like yours. One of the new features for the Industrial Truck participants is a customized Preview for each participating company, based upon the Currie Gap Analysis. This document will assist your distributorship in identifying areas to target for improvement-both large areas where intense strategy development is necessary and also areas of "low-hanging fruit." There have also been improvements to the Engineered Systems/Storage and Handling Survey. As these are industries with unique strategies for going to market, the information that the Currie team gathers will continue to reflect the tracking requirements of the participating members. The instructions have also been updated with deeper descriptions of the data points requested for each section, especially required inputs. In addition, MHEDA will offer two free tutorials in February for each segment questionnaire. Again, this is a free distributor member benefit and results are always complimentary to those who participate. If you have any questions about these surveys, please contact MHEDA at 847-680-3500.
