North West Wages and Benefits Survey - take part and compare...

by Ilona Krohn, Prinicpal Economic Advisor

GM Chamber is combining forces with other Chambers across the North West to launch the third North West Wages and Benefits Survey.

The purpose of the survey is to provide Chamber members, other local companies, and inward investors with an up to date picture of basic salaries, hourly rates, and employee benefits across a range of industry sectors in the North West. This annual survey allows you to monitor trends in your own industry sector as well as benchmarking your own company's pay and benefits package against the industry average.

The first half of the survey covers employee benefits whilst the second part deals with pay rates. We have selected the industry sectors on the basis of their importance to the North West economy and because they also contain distinctive and sector specific occupations. Some occupations are generic across all sectors and we've added these to each sector as appropriate.

The section on pay rates is divided in to 4 main categories:

1. Engineering, Manufacturing & Construction (hourly rate)
2. Clerical (hourly rate)
3. Professional & Managerial (annual salary)
4. Retail & Tourism (hourly rate)

We want this survey to become respected as the leading and most influential survey of its kind in the North West. But for this to happen we need as many of you as possible to complete the survey because the more responses we get, the more meaningful the results.

Please navigate the survey via the ‘next' and ‘back' buttons. Your response will not be saved unless you press the ‘done' button at the end.

Complete confidentiality for all respondents is, of course, assured. Indeed we will only need your details if you would like to receive a free copy of the report. However, we do ask that you state which Chamber of Commerce you are a member of.

The deadline for responses is Wednesday 19th August 2009.

Copies of the final report will be available in September. Thanks for taking part!
