Wages & Labour Benchmarking

We run a Wages & Labour Benchmarking Survey, helping members to set salaries, conduct HR business planning, and recruit and retain the best talent. 

Why take part?

To help you with your HR planning 

Participating businesses will be given access an interactive online dashboard to benchmark their data against similar businesses and national averages outside of our industry.

Use the benchmarks to set competitive salaries and staff benefits packages; and put plans in place for any areas where you may fall behind.

For the benefit of the industry

With a greater understanding of the situation for member businesses, we can help to promote careers and plan activity to help our members to attract and retain the best talent

Who can take part? 

If you're a business owner or senior leader at a horticultural retailer or grower business, HTA member or not, and have oversight of the topics listed below you can take part! (Only one person per business should take part so there's no double-counting).

What does the benchmarking survey cover?

  • Wages by role
  • Staff retention (staff benefits, statutory contributions)
  • Numbers employed (full-time, part-time etc.)
  • Staff change (turnover rate, absenteeism, expected change)
  • Unfilled vacancies
  • Recruitment
  • Demographics of the workforce
  • Seasonal workers

How do I take part?

Retailer and grower HTA member businesses should have automatically received an email invitation when the study launched. But if you’re a new member or haven't received the email, you can register to take part via the enquiry form below or get in touch.
