Sharpen your recruiting and retention practices.
In this tough economy, itís more important than ever to see how your organization compares to others in the industry.
The Wolf Survey is a result of detailed analysis of questionnaires completed by our foodservice food and beverage manufacturing participant companies, both public and privately held. As participation continues to grow, our competitive industry benchmarking becomes more valuable.
Prior to the release of The Wolf Survey in 2005, the extended foodservice industry - a sector traditionally devoid of comparative compensation data - had limited statistical benchmarking studies available to measure and evaluate staff salaries and related compensation packages.
The Wolf Survey has since transformed this previously disparate information into an indispensable business tool to help foodservice professionals create and run the most competitive and efficient organizations possible.
The Wolf Survey: Your Single Source
As the single best assessment tool available for foodservice industry sales and marketing compensation and benefits data, The Wolf Survey utilizes only industry-specific data from top foodservice food and beverage manufacturers in its analyses.
