Western Growers is offering members an important tool to help attract and retain the best employees in California and Arizona’s produce industry. The annual HR Practices and Compensation Survey collects data to provide members with crucial information needed to keep compensation competitive—and your participation this year is needed!
Every WG member who participates in the surveys will receive these valuable results at no cost (a $2,000 value). Your participation also qualifies you for a chance to win an Apple MacBook Air.
This year's survey will include:
- New data for 13 additional field worker positions, including labor sources, compensation, eligibility for incentives and piece-rate, and worker retention programs.
- Details for 70 roles across your entire organization, including executive, sales, marketing, plant, office, and field jobs.
- Compensation and HR practices for over 20 categories, including base pay, health plan coverage, incentive programs, and merit increases.
Western Growers will also be offering a free webinar on Thursday, February 16, 2017, at 10:00am PST to provide insight on attracting the best employees and navigating through the survey. Click here to register for the webinar.
Participate in this year’s survey by March 31, 2017 for free access to the results report.
How the Surveys Works
Each year, Western Growers collects data in two surveys: the Professional Compensation Survey and the HR Practices Survey.
Professional Compensation Survey: collects base pay and variable (bonus) salary data for professional positions in the specialty crop industry. We use an independent, certified compensation specialist to protect the confidentiality of your data.
HR Practices Survey: collects information for performance appraisals, merit increases/merit budgets, bonus/incentive programs, austerity programs, health plan offerings, paid time off and more.
