2019 Wage and Benefit Survey Is Open!

The 2019 GLGA Annual Wage and Benefit Survey is open for participation. The 2018 survey had 510 participating companies and included compensation reporting of more than 18,000 employees. It is the largest and most reliable industry wage and benefit survey on the market.

This year’s program will feature an exciting new enhancement, a secure online portal to view your year-over-year data. Previous years’ participants have requested this feature, and this year it is available.

To participate in the 2019 GLGA Wage and Benefit Survey through the online portal, please click HERE. Every member will need to register initially to set up their account by scrolling down to the “Register” area, pick the Great Lakes Graphics Association as their affiliate from the dropdown feature and use the password GLGA. To participate via a fillable form PDF that can be faxed, mailed or emailed, please click HERE. The download function will be an arrow pointing down in the top right-hand corner of the screen.

Please contact Debra Warner at (262) 439-8992 or dwarner@glga.info if you have any questions.
