Cerno publishes 2003 compensation trucking reports

TORONTO, (April 3, 2003) — Cerno Research Inc., a Canadian market research firm, has just published the latest report focusing on the compensation and benefits practices of Canadian trucking & logistics operations.

The 2003 Trucking Operations Compensation & Benefits Reports, produced in partnership with the Canadian Trucking Alliance and associated provincial trucking organizations, are the only annual reports covering the trucking industry in Canada featuring both national and regional results. This year’s report found that despite continued sluggishness in the U.S. economy, growth in Canada still seems stable.

“In the trucking employment marketplace, we continue to see a widening gap between companies that have had to hold pay increases steady over the last few years, and those that have continued to compete for talented and skilled employees unfettered,” said Stephen Harrington, special projects director for Cerno Research. “Widening of the percentiles is not occurring in all job titles — it is therefore important to have accurate research to identify those job titles at risk, and those that are already secure in your company’s compensation budget.”

The report is based upon survey data collected from 488 Canadian trucking operations. The wage levels of more than 270,000 employees are represented in 108 job descriptions ranging from junior employees to senior executives. The study also covers over 30 topics regarding employment policies and benefits.
