Logistics and supply chain specialists, Logistics Recruitment, recently announced the launch of the first dedicated logistics and supply chain salary survey for the Australian and international markets. Driven by market feedback, the 2006 Salary Survey is the first of a number of specialist surveys being introduced by Logistics Recruitment to help companies retain and recruit staff and formulate strategic human resource policies.
According to Mr Darryl Judd, General Manager, Logistics Recruitment market feedback indicated that accurate surveys and statistics that are specifically focused on the people who make up the logistics and supply chain industry have been few and far between over recent years.
“Based on the feedback, Logistics Recruitment decided to develop a survey that could drive change and assist companies to successfully recruit and retain key staff within the logistics and supply chain industries. The new Salary Survey will better inform companies about key drivers of change, market trends and changes in the market. Employers can then take the results and develop comprehensive human resource policies that are suited to the needs of the market,” Mr Judd says.
“The Salary Survey will answer questions like: Is the industry growing? Is it expanding – are we seeing this on a national basis or just in specific areas? What types of jobs do people hold within the industry? What do they earn? What incentives are they looking for to stay with their current employers? What types of packages would encourage them to change employment?”
The 2006 Salary Survey will focus on employment trends, drivers of change and forecast issues that will impact the industry in years to come. Initial findings from trial surveys in the battle to retain staff, include increased use of salary sacrificing, flexible employment packaging, child care and medical care allowances, which are all significant areas to retain and recruit key staff.
Everyone that takes part in the Salary Survey will receive a complimentary copy of the results one month prior to general industry release. In addition, Logistics Recruitment already provides the only specialist quarterly salary guide for the logistics and supply chain sectors. The salary guide has long been a valuable and influential management tool, portraying key recruitment trends, statistics and commercial indicators across a broad range of sectors within the supply chain. The salary guide provides a strong barometer of economic activity and its impact on the industry.
