The 2019 NBAA Compensation Survey has received a face-lift from previous years, and the expanded survey employs a user-friendly, Excel-based questionnaire that includes topics critical to attracting and retaining business aviation professionals.
“Today’s aviation workforce environment is more competitive than ever,” said Jo Damato, CAM, NBAA’s vice president of educational strategy and workforce development. “The NBAA Compensation Survey is an invaluable tool to help you retain and attract exceptional talent.”
The survey covers annual cash compensation, salary ranges and merit increases. New to this year’s survey are questions related to long-term employment incentives, duty/flight hours and days off. These new topic areas reflect the results of NBAA workforce studies, which point to an employee’s perceived value to an organization and quality of life as important variables in workforce retention.
The Compensation Survey also provides a unique opportunity for aviation organizations to benchmark their own compensation packages with companies of similar size or within the same region. This year, results will be published in September, allowing companies to use the survey data in compensation planning for 2020.
“We encourage all NBAA members to participate in the survey so the results are representative of the industry as a whole, and then consider the results as a benchmark to develop compensation packages that will encourage retention and attract new professionals to your organization,” added Damato.
Participants in the 2019 Compensation Survey will receive free access to the survey results after publication in September. Other NBAA members may purchase access to the survey results.
The 2019 NBAA Compensation Survey is being administered by BDO USA, LLP on behalf of NBAA.
