October 9 — In the fourth annual Salary Survey for Banks and Credit Unions, Wichita, Kan.-base BalancedComp has published an asset with cutting-edge insights for human resource managers and directors in the throes of salary administration planning for 2019. The survey was completed in the summer of 2018 and is ready for instant download now.
“We do this survey to capture the information and put it to work for our own clients, and to provide an additional source for the market at large,” explained Anthony Bieker, compensation director and economist for BalancedComp.
The ’18-’19 survey analyzes responses from 396 banks and credit unions throughout the U.S. by industry, asset, geographic wage differentials and by bank or credit union. It is the only salary survey that produces a cross-section of banks and credit unions, to dial into the most competitive, relevant salary data by market.
“It’s our job to make our clients’ jobs easier,” said Christie Summervill, BalancedComp CEO. “The data held in our annual salary survey takes away so much of the manual math and gut-instinct guessing that consumes weeks and even months of HR’s time each fall. This data is the key to narrowing down to the exact market parameters for each individual organization.”
Key findings from the most recent survey include:
- Industry-average turnover rates at 19.7 percent
