The Chamber conducts an annual Wage Survey for its membership each spring. The survey helps local organizations gauge their compensation against other companies in our region. In even years, the survey also includes benefit data for the same benchmarking comparisons. The survey data is valuable to companies to use as a pricing tool for bidding contracts, and, most importantly, as a human resources guide for benchmarking wage and benefit rates.



In 2017, the Chamber partnered with the North Alabama Society for Human Resources (NASHRM), and the Economic Development agencies of Limestone, Morgan, and Cullman counties. Survey data results are available for purchase through the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County. Contact Lyndsay Ferguson to purchase the 2017 Wage Survey Report.

A few important things to note:

  • The Wage & Benefit Survey, administered by Astron Solutions, is open for participation for approximately one month beginning in February each year with the final report available in late April.
  • In abiding by antitrust guidelines issued by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission, a minimum of 5 organizations are required to respond for each data point in order for the results to be published.
  • Cost to purchase the Wage Survey Data final report (including pdf, xls) is $200 for participants and $400 for non-participants. A printed paper copy is also available for an additional fee. Contact Lyndsay Ferguson at lferguson@hsvchamber.org to purchase a copy of the report.


To encourage participation in the survey, the cost to purchase the full survey results is significantly reduced for participating companies.
