Window to Win MacBook Air, Receive Valuable Hiring Data is Closing

Western Growers is offering members a chance to win a MacBook Air (a $1,000 value), as well as receive invaluable data from the HR Practices and Compensation Survey which will be crucial in helping attract and retain the best employees.

Members are encouraged to participate in the HR Practices and Compensation Survey—an annual survey which collects data to provide members with crucial information needed to keep compensation competitive. Every WG member who participates in the surveys by March 31 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.

Time is running out so participate in the survey today! 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.

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.
