SALARY SURVEY

Trending positive
With economic challenges still lingering, compensation results show conservative, yet positive trends. When asked
to compare total cash compensation between 2009 and 2010, respondents in
all eight categories reported increases
in line or above the 3 percent-4 percent
national average. CEOs were on the
lower end, with a 3.1 percent total cash
compensation year-to-year increase,
possibly depicting that their willingness
to financially "take one for the team."
Plant/general managers and sales and
marketing managers reported a larger
increase, 5.8 percent from 2009 to 2010.
With sales positions often having some
version of a performance-based compensation package, the 5.8 percent increase could indicate small to mid-size
companies are on the mend financially.
The job satisfaction portion of the
survey examines how different fac-

tors contribute to overall satisfaction
of those surveyed. Based on a sevenpoint scale (where 7 = "extremely
satisfied") the mean score for overall satisfaction with salary was average at 5.6 (up from 5.2 in 2007 when
small to midsize processors were last
surveyed). "Work conditions" and
"Amount of responsibility you have"
reflected the highest increase in mean
scores from 2007 to 2010 with an increase from 5.4 to 6.0 for "work conditions" and a rise from 5.5 to 6.1 for
"amount of responsibility." In the area
of training and development, all categories saw an increase from 2007 to
2010 except for "company supports
professional development through tuition reimbursement and formal training (that average satisfaction rating fell
from 4.4 to 4.0).
The percentage of respondents
who reported working for a company

in a hiring freeze was 32.6 percent
(up from 11.3 percent in 2007); 22.5
percent reported their company was
in a salary freeze. Additionally, companies hiring within existing positions to meet increased production
requirements fell from 37.9 percent
to 18 percent and companies creating new positions fell from 25.4
percent to 16.9 percent. These numbers may indicate that either these
small to midsize companies are still
struggling because of the worldwide
recession, or they are choosing not
to have salary increases and additional hiring to be conservative as
the economy continues improving. ■
