MADISON, Wis. (September 19, 2012) – Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has just released its 2012-2013 Complete Credit Union Staff Salary Survey Report. Based on extensive research conducted by CUNA, this report features a comprehensive analysis of salary information for the credit union industry.

The survey measures compensation data for 90 full-time and ten part-time positions at credit unions with $1 million or more in assets, including base salaries, incentives, bonuses, total cash compensation and salary ranges.

“The lack of qualified job candidates in certain positions means that competitors may attempt to lure away your employees with highly sought-after skills,” says Beth Soltis, senior research analyst for CUNA. “Credit unions that analyze the competitiveness of their compensation plans are the most likely to both attract and retain top talent.”

Based on growing interest in comprehensive planning tools, CUNA offers a package of salary planning resources, in print or PDF format, to help credit unions gain a comprehensive understanding of compensation trends in their geographic and peer group.

The Complete Credit Union Staff Salary Survey Package includes:

  • 2012-2013 Complete Credit Union Staff Salary Survey Report
  • New! 2012-2013 CU Staff Salary Metric/Calculation Worksheets
  • 2012-2013 Geographic Customized Salary Survey
  • 2012-2013 Complete Guide to Setting Salaries
  • E-Scan Research & Advice Portal (basic access)
  • E-Scan Newsletter (one-year subscription)

An electronic version of the survey’s data tables is also available for purchase, allowing users to apply formulas and insert the data directly into their credit union’s spreadsheets.

Many elements of the package are customizable, allowing users to create personalized peer groups using various criteria for the most accurate comparisons possible. Users may search by credit union name, asset size, number of members, field of membership, number of full-time employees, number of services offered, total loans outstanding, state and geographic region.
