Compensation and HR Practices Surveys Open: Sign Up Today

The WG Professional Compensation and HR Practices Surveys are now open for participants to enter data! If you haven’t signed up to participate yet, you’re missing a chance to stay in tune with trends that help attract and maintain the best employees in agriculture.

How It Works

Each year, Western Growers collects data in two surveys: The Professional Compensation Survey and the HR Practices Survey.

The 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 – no one at Western Growers sees your company’s information.

Data is collected for the following types of positions:

  • Executive level
  • Sales/Marketing
  • Logistics, Food Safety
  • Plant/Office/Field

The 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.

Why Your Company Needs to Participate

Data specific to the regional ag industry lets you compare your company’s salary and benefits with other companies in the industry to ensure your competitiveness. The survey results serve as a benchmark guide for budgeting for employee expenses, allowing you to recruit and retain the best talent.

Participants receive complimentary results for the surveys in which they participate. Non-participating members may purchase the compensation survey results.
