NRHA Presents Insights From New Report

Retailers’ payroll expenses can be a critical part of their operations’ profitability. The North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA) 2017 Employee Compensation Report provides data on how independent home improvement businesses handle salaries, health insurance, vacation and other benefits. The report includes information on:

  • Average wages by position at hardware stores, home centers and lumberyards
  • Bonuses
  • Insurance and retirement benefits
  • Paid vacation and other time off
  • Time and money committed to employee training

This report is an important benchmarking tool for compensation, and is the only report of its kind focused entirely on the independent home improvement industry.

When released later this year, the complete 2017 Employee Compensation Report will be available exclusively to NRHA members and retailers who contributed to the study.
