Participating TRSA members receive this tremendous resource free and a bonus customized report specific to their operations. You cannot manage your operations effectively without access to this vital report.
Compensation and Benefits Report
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, mixed) and local, regional and national operations.
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 Safety Report allows participants to benchmark their occupational injury and illness data to measure progress in establishing and implementing enhanced management and safety practices to reduce and eliminate occupational injuries and illnesses by highlighting the industry’s highest risk areas, as well as these most cited by OSHA. These SafeTRSA efforts have led to the adoption of proven policies and procedures for maintaining equipment (lock-out, tag-out), handling soiled linen (especially blood-borne pathogens) and working in confined spaces.
Industry Sustainability Report
The TRSA Industry Sustainability Report fosters comparison with industry colleagues on water and energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, evaporation credits and a dozen other sustainable business practices. Data guides linen, uniform and facility services laundries in improving economies, key to increasing efficiencies and maintaining competitiveness. Median performance is reported by line of business and all respondents. This report is for TRSA members only.
