Union County Wage and Benefit Survey

The Union County Wage & Benefit Survey is produced every two years. Local employers and prospective employers can use the survey to set fair, competitive salary and benefit packages and estimate costs for adding new staff. In 2017, a regional approach was taken to complete a Wage & Benefit Report. The Union County Economic Development Partnership partnered with several neighboring counties, including Champaign, Clark, Logan, and Madison. The report was completed by Gradwohl Consulting with assistance from Ohio Means Jobs and the Dayton Development Coalition.

For more information about the survey, or if you have a specific workforce-related question, please contact the Union County Community Improvement Corporation by calling 937.642.6279.
