Compensation Survey Updated with HR Managers’ Input

Posted September 2, 2022 at 12:33 pm

TRSA’s Human Resources Committee reviewed the TRSA Plant Employee Compensation study and recommended updates to the survey to make it more current and more likely to be filled out by human resources (HR) departments. For example, revising the survey to include salary and hourly rates in ranges, instead of exact numbers, allows more HR managers to be able to complete the survey.

Other updates to the survey included expanded Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) questions including growth measurement of DEI programs and questions on flexible work schedules, like remote work options and varying eight- and 10-hour work days.

The TRSA Plant Employee Compensation Report quantifies differences in pay and benefits between various types of linen, uniform and facility services operations for the range of exempt and non-exempt positions in the industry. Companies are classified similarly to the TRSA Industry Performance Report, enabling readers to contrast the offerings of specialists (healthcare, hospitality, industrial and mixed) and local, regional and national operations.

Companies use this data to compare their pay and benefits with operations similar to theirs in these respects:

  • Line of Business: Typical TRSA, Food & Beverage Linen, Industrial, Healthcare, Mixed
  • Analysis by Number of Locations: Single Plant & Multiple Plants (two, three or more)
  • Sales Volume Analysis (Under $7M, $7-15M, $15-35M, $35M+)

Data reported for each of the following categories:

  • Demographic Information
  • Exempt Plant Employee Compensation
  • Non-Exempt Plant Employee Hourly Wages
  • Fringe Benefit Programs

TRSA members that participate in the survey receive at no cost a customized digital copy of the survey results for easy benchmarking. Non-participants can purchase the report. The deadline for submission is Oct. 1. Click here to download the survey.
