Wage Survey

2022 Wage Survey Header-01

Welcome to the 2022 Western & Central Wisconsin Wage Survey - our 23rd year! We are pleased to announce that Central Wisconsin will now be represented, so we have changed our name from the Chippewa Valley & Coulee Region Wage Survey to the Western & Central Wisconsin Wage Survey.

The survey is distributed March 21st, due back by May 20th, and is published in mid-July. We are proud to be covering employers from nine Chambers of Commerce in the Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, La Crosse, Marshfield, Menomonie, Portage County, Rice Lake, Wausau, and Wisconsin Rapids. Also involved are the local chapters of Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) in the Chippewa Valley, La Crosse, Wausau, and Winona. Thank you for your participation!

Our objective for this survey is to be the definitive source of base compensation information for commonly recognized jobs in our reporting area. Many of the jobs at your organization will be covered here, however, you probably will have some jobs that do not fill any of our descriptions, and should therefore NOT be reported. Positions you may have in areas other than Western & Central Wisconsin should NOT be reported here.

ALL JOB TITLES ARE LISTED IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER. We continue to report the results by industry group (manufacturing, healthcare, financial institutions, general business, nonprofits), as well as the OVERALL results.

Results for all industries are in the final report which will be published MID-JULY. Data from the survey is also sorted by five industry breakout groups and reports the 25th, 50th, and 75th percentiles, averages and sample sizes.

All information gathered in the survey is held STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL. All responses are returned to the Eau Claire Chamber of Commerce who is the survey host and major sponsor. Technical advisory support for the survey is provided by Deb Marshall, Senior Manager, at Wipfli LLP.
