The National Print Owners Association launched their new Quick Printing Industry Wage and Benefits Survey. This major print industry survey comes immediately after the completion and publication of the new NPOA Benchmarking Study.
The newest survey covers 19 key positions in the quick & small commercial print industry, plus compensation practices for outside sales reps. Positions covered include general managers, customer service reps, senior graphic artists, bindery operators, mailing services operators, digital and offset press operators, and other positions. The survey also covers healthcare costs & employee benefits.
According to NPOA Executive Director John Stewart, the survey will take the typical firm less than 20 minutes to complete. Print companies that complete the survey will receive a free copy of the survey results. Participation isn’t limited to NPOA members and survey details can be found at www.printowners.org.
The new NPOA Benchmarking Study is an over 100 page analysis of key financial ratios dealing with industry profitability, has been completed and is available at the NPOA Bookstore. This biennial study offers a detailed look at financial performance broken down by annual sales volume, population density, number of outside sales representatives, geographic location, franchise versus independent, as well as by profitability quartiles.
Not only did the Benchmarking Study participants receive a free copy of the completed survey but also the 30-page Executive Summary has been made available as a free download to all NPOA members whether or not they participated in the survey.
