— Rock County 5.0 and the Blackhawk Human Resource Association have released the results of a salary and benefits survey that looks at hourly wages and benefits for local employees.

The survey covers salaries for 72 occupational titles and profiles employer benefits packages. It includes data reported from 64 businesses and organizations that together have more than 6,000 employees.


A sampling shows that:


-- The average 2009 salary increase attributed to merit, cost-of-living and promotions was 1.7 percent.


-- More than 96 percent of respondents indicated that they provided health care coverage for their employees, and about 83 percent offered a flexible spending medical account.


-- More than half said they provided some form of tuition reimbursement.


Organizations that participated in the survey will get the 134-page report for free.


While an abbreviated version will be offered online, full reports can be bought from Blackhawk Human Resource Association.
