A Message From Western Growers

A key piece of our mission at Western Growers is to provide members with the assets you need to maintain and grow your operations. The Compensation and Benefits Survey includes key insights, analytics, and data that are vital to keeping pay programs, human resource practices and employee programs current and competitive. Most importantly, this type of agriculture-specific data is unequaled in our industry.

Acquiring and keeping the best work-ready, strategic, and forward-thinking employees are critical to the health, safety, and future of the food and agriculture industry. The survey will provide you with data to help you make informed business decisions in the areas of recruitment, retention, employment-related budget, and a competitive total reward strategy.

We have participated in the Western Growers Compensation Survey and the H.R. Practices Survey for approximately five years. The agricultural focus of the survey is vital to our organization as the surveys provide relevant compensation, benefit and H.R. practices data. We have come to rely on the data’s high quality and responsiveness of Western Growers to answer questions we have about the data. This type of information has been a challenge to find and we are happy that Western Growers surveys are available for our use.Laura Wood - Compensation Director, Reiter Affiliated Companies
