Welcome to the...

The West-Central Ohio Chambers “Wage, Salary & Benefits Survey” is a cooperative effort of the area chambers in the counties of Auglaize, Darke, Mercer, Miami, Preble, and Shelby; and the Human Resources Association of Western Ohio. This cooperative effort of neighboring chambers not only promotes a closer relationship amongst the chambers, but more importantly offers the advantage of sharing our resources to provide better programming and resource information for our members.

Survey results are expected to be available in September 2020. The results will be distributed free of charge to those who participate and complete this survey. Chamber member businesses that do not participate will have to purchase the survey results at $50.00/copy. Non-member costs will be $100.00. All completed forms are confidential.

Please take the time to fully complete the survey...your input is critically important and your participation can go a long way in providing the type of comparative data you need to manage your organization more effectively. If you like, a hard copy of the survey is available below to help you collect date before entering it online. Once you complete the survey electronically, the information you submit this year will be saved electronically and next year you will only have to review and update the information that you submit, saving you valuable time.

Please complete the survey by Friday, July 31.  Thank you for your input, and we look forward to including your company's data in the survey.


A special "Thank You" to the Wage & Salary Survey Team for preparing the survey.
