Average wages for Springfield Ohio – 12,000+ employees

WittCAM logoLast year, Wittenberg University business students worked with us at the Chamber to do a Wage & Benefits survey for Clark County – the Springfield, OH metro area (MSA).  Over 1400 surveys were sent out to a Chamber distribution list early 2009.  140 companies participated, representing 12,291 employees.  Many thanks to Wendy Gradwohl, WittCAM (Wittenberg Center for Applied Management), Amy Donahoe, and the students who did it.  The project concluded in the summer, and the results were released to survey participants.  The results are now being results – for free – to the general public (last survey was pay for non-participants).  You can get a full copy of the survey in .pdf format here.

Notes: “Cases” is the number of companies submitting employee wage data.  “Average” is the average hourly wage.  “Entry” is the entry level wage.  “Max” is the maximum hourly wage.  Wages are based on an assumed 40 hour work week, 52 weeks a year.  They are the mean/average of all the wages reported for each individual job.
