2020 Wage and Benefit Survey

Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, and Morgan Counties

Horizon Point Consulting is partnering with the Lawrence County Industrial Development Board, Limestone County Economic Development Association, Huntsville-Madison County Chamber, Morgan County Economic Development Association, and North Alabama Society for Human Resource Management to collect and report wage and benefit data for industries in the region.

The 2020 Wage and Benefit Survey is currently scheduled to launch on April 15, 2020. Open registration is closed, but interested participants can contact jdm@horizonpointconsulting.com to be added after April 10.

Why Participate?

In 2019, over 200 companies in the region participated in the survey. By participating, each company received a comprehensive report of wage data across industries in the region. This report helps companies make informed, strategic decisions about compensation and benefits for Executive, Management, Production, Administrative, and other occupational groups in order to remain competitive and retain top talent.

What Information Will We Be Asked to Provide?

You will be asked to provide demographic information, company and HR data, general pay practices, and compensation data by job title. The data being requested is for the last quarter of 2019, or as of 01/01/2020.

Identifying company information will be protected and will not be visible to other participants.

The 2020 survey will also have questions about benefits. Categories include, but are not limited to:
- Medical, Dental, and Vision Coverage
- Life Insurance
- Retirement Plans
- PTO/Leave Policies

To help participants prepare data, a complete list of questions is available as a Microsoft Excel Workbook. Download it here: 2020 Wage & Benefit Survey Workbook (updated 4/13/20) 

Survey Administration

This year, the survey will be hosted on the Sensible Surveys platform, to be administered by the Horizon Point team. Sensible Surveys is user-friendly and intuitive, allows users to save progress and return later, and produces interactive, exportable reports for users once the survey results have been compiled.

A user guide for the new platform can be downloaded here: 2020 Wage and Benefit Survey User Guide

Each company will have one Sensible Surveys account tied to the email address of the primary user. If needed, the primary user can share login credentials with colleagues to enter data under the same unique user account. This protects user and company privacy by having a singular access point.

Questions about completing the survey should be directed to jdm@horizonpointconsulting.com.

Questions about costs/billing should be directed to your county representative:
Lawrence County tpace@lawrenceidb.com
Limestone County bshockney@lceda.com
Madison County lpennington@hsvchamber.org
Morgan County pst@mceda.org

How Do I Participate?

Open registration has closed, but interested participants can contact jdm@horizonpointconsulting.com to be added after April 10.

The primary user for each company will receive an email from SensibleSurveys to log in and set up their account when the survey launches on April 15, 2020.
