Regional Wages & Benefits Survey Open

In 2014, an initial Wages & Benefits Survey, facilitated by Michiana Partnership, was distributed to Michiana businesses. This was done in collaboration with economic development organizations in St. Joseph, Marshall, Elkhart, Kosciusko and Fulton counties in Indiana and Berrien and Cass counties in Michigan. The survey’s goal was to help the Michiana region understand the competitive labor force landscape for existing and new businesses; all important components to economic development. View the 2014 report. Michiana Partnership is facilitating this survey again in 2015, and we need you to participate.Businesses that should participate are manufacturers, health care, banks, financial companies and other businesses offering professional services. The survey is not applicable to restaurants/retailers. The questions in this confidential survey cover a wide range of positions and include:

  • Starting, average and maximum wage
