Wages Appear Stagnant Notes Study

Industry Wages Appear Stagnant

NPOA Offers Preview of New Wage Study

With the expected release of NPOA’s 2014-2015 Wage & Benefits Study less than three weeks away, we can already offer a preview of what this new study will reveal. 

Of the 19 key positions covered in this study, wages have either dropped or remained stagnant for 13 of these positions when compared to the wages reported in early 2012. With an overall “margin of error” of less than 1%, the drop or stagnation in wages is not a “fluke” or a reflection of differences in data bases, but rather a clear indication that, for whatever reason, owners have chosen to freeze wages during the past 26 months.

Sales Per Employee Trending? [Unpublished]

Another Member's Only Benefit from NPOA...

Sales Per Employee is a Popular
Metric for Measuring Productivity

If you haven't had a chance to download your "Executive Summary" of NPOA's 2014-2015 Wage & Benefits Study do it today. The "Executive Summary" offers far more than just a teaser look at the full study. The summary is 42-pages in length and gives a good insight regarding trends in wages and benefits. One of the more interesting graphs in both the complete study as well as the summary, is a chart dealing with Sales Per Employee. This a popular metric that allow you to compare your firm's productivity against others. To calculate, simply divide gross annual sales by the total number of employees used to produce those sales - that would include all owners, partners and spouses whether they receive a paycheck or not. You should calculate your SPE at least every couple of months, and projecting two-months of sales out 12 months. Approximately 62% of all respondents to this recent survey reported SPEs of $130,000.
