Report offers data and job descriptions for CUs under $50 million in assets

For the sixth consecutive year, credit unions under $50 million in assets will again have free and full access via download to new salary survey data that will help them plan for the future. The updated report comes through a special group licensing arrangement with CUNA. The report has a retail price of $250.00 if purchased directly from CUNA.

In February 2019, CUNA sent questionnaires to the Human Resource (HR) professional or CEO/manager of 5,388 credit unions with $1 million or more in assets. This number includes 2,935 credit unions with $1 mil­lion to $50 million in assets.

“Since many of our credit unions are under $50 million in assets, offering the free download again is a good use of League resources, and a good source of information for Managers and CEOs determining salaries and employee benchmarks,” stated League President Ken Watts. Watts noted that 10 West Virginia League member credit unions voluntarily participated in the national survey.

The vast majority—76% to 83%—of credit unions with assets of $1 million to $50 million plan to provide salary/wage increases to at least some of their employees by the end of 2019 the survey revealed.
