Wage and Benefits Survey

The 2020 Kentucky Manufacturing Wage and Benefits Survey is OPEN until September 25!

Before you begin your survey, there are a few details you should be aware of:
• Only ONE survey should be completed per company (or one per location in Kentucky); thus, feel free to collaborate with your colleagues so that only one survey response is submitted from your company
• Your survey link is unique to you/your company–please DO NOT share it with others. Any person/company wishing to submit a survey should follow the same sign-up process you did.
• You may pause and resume your survey at any time by utilizing our “Save and Continue Later” feature (dark bar at the top of your page); if you choose to use this feature, be sure and ONLY re-enter the survey via the link that is emailed to you per that feature.

What is the Wage and Benefits Survey?
The Wage and Benefits Study is an assessment of manufacturing companies and the jobs they provide in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Manufacturing companies from all across the state participate by completing a survey that contains simple questions about the wage and benefits packages they offer to their employees.
