Budget employee pay and benefits with confidence!

One of the major challenges facing business leaders is providing a fair and adequate compensation and benefits package for their employees. If the package is insufficient, the company can’t attract and keep qualified personnel. If the package is too generous, profit tends to suffer. And you want to know how much other companies are paying for certain positions and what fringe benefit packages are being offered.

The NAW 2016 Employee Compensation Report is a powerful cross-industry study that does all the heavy data crunching for you. It draws on findings from the most comprehensive compensation and benefits survey of the wholesale distribution industry that you’ll find anywhere. Nearly 1,000 wholesaler-distributors from a broad spectrum of sales volumes and lines of trade at more than 6,000 locations participated in this year's survey. With this report, you'll see how your company’s compensation program compares with those of other wholesale distribution companies. You’ll have all the benchmarks and backup you need to budget employee pay and benefits with confidence!

You’ll receive breakouts by:

  • Company size in more than 20 sales volume categories from the smallest to $1 billion and above
  • Job title from warehouse employee to vice president to CEO—more than 30 different titles
  • Geography by more than 100 specific areas in the United States, plus Canada and Puerto Rico
