EDA Releases 2018 OPE Compensation & Benefits Survey Questionnaire

Last week the Equipment Dealers Association distributed the Outdoor Power Equipment (OPE) version of the 2018 Compensation & Benefits Survey Questionnaire to more than one thousand OPE dealers throughout the United States and Canada.

This survey, completed every two years, collects data about staffing, salary, commission/bonus and benefits for outdoor power equipment dealerships in North America.  EDA also distributes a version specifically for larger agriculture equipment dealers.

The survey is the most comprehensive collection of data on dealership compensation and benefits and will be available by early December so dealers can use it as a tool for end of year performance evaluations, budget analysis, benchmarking, etc.  Also included in the report are a handful of sample HR forms like an onboarding checklist and notice of adverse employment action.

Due to the intensive nature of completing the survey (it’s roughly 100 questions) every participant, regardless of membership status with EDA, will receive a complimentary copy of the culminating report.  Reports will be available for purchase for those who do not complete the survey questionnaire.

If you did not receive a link to take the survey and you wish to participate OR if you have any questions, please email surveys@equipmentdealer.org.
