September 2018 - Parks & Recreation - 15

Time off is vital for
a motivated and
healthy staff
over the past year. Between 2017
and 2018, the 10 park and recreation professional job titles tracked
in the report saw their base salaries
increase between 2.5 percent and
3.0 percent. Over these same 12
months, the consumer price index
- a widely followed measure of
inflation - grew 2.1 percent.
Another form of cash compensation is through bonuses, which are
available to, at last, some employees
at 36 percent of park and recreation
agencies. The most common bonus plans are tenure-based, where
employees receive a fixed payment
based on the anniversary of their
employment (available at 19 percent
of agencies). Employees at 15 percent of park and recreation agencies
are eligible for merit-based bonuses
based on their performance, while
2 percent of agencies have plans
in which employees throughout
the department earn a bonus based
on the success of their department
meeting stated goals.
Benefits
Worker compensation is about
more than just salaries and bonuses. Benefits, including paid
time off, insurance and retirement
plans, can represent approximately
30 percent of a worker's total compensation and include:
* Time off: Park and recreation
agencies typically provide 10
days of annual vacation to their
newly hired full-time employees
(after any preliminary probation

period). After five years of employment, the median number
of vacation days increases to 15
days per year, growing to 18 days
after 10 years of service. In addition, agencies typically provide
their employees with 12 days of
annual sick leave.
* Maternity and paternity leave:
A quarter of park and recreation agencies currently offer
specific paid-leave benefits associated with the birth or adoption of a child. Nine percent of

park and recreation agencies do
provide specific paid maternity
benefits and 16 percent of park
and recreation agencies provide
specific paid maternity and paternity benefits.
* Health Insurance: Park and recreation agencies cover a median
87 percent of their employees'
health insurance premiums.
* Retirement: Nearly 4 in 5 park
and recreation agencies have a
defined benefit (DB) program
(i.e., a pension plan) as part of
