OAK BROOK, Ill. — -The Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC) has released Warehousing Benefits Programs (2007 Data), its biennial survey of industry practices on employee benefits.

The book is a resource that assists managers to evaluate and develop competitive benefit plans for warehouse employees. Data was gathered in a survey of WERC members.

The report analyzes 20 individual benefits ranging from Vacation to Sign-on Bonuses. Union vs. non-union figures are shown where there are statistically significant differences.

Data was compiled on benefits policies for three types of employees:

Warehousing nonexempt employees
Office nonexempt employees
Exempt employees (professional, outside sales, supervisory or management).

This year the study was expanded to include, for the first time, information on total cost of each benefit to the facility, total cost of each benefit as a percentage of salary, and percentage of workforce that use each benefit.
Warehousing Benefits Programs retails for $70.

The report can be purchased at www.WERC.org.
