Compensation data from NPTA's paper merchant survey

Learn how your compensation package compares to other paper distributors – Deadline to complete the survey extended to April 15 for NPTA members

Hiring and retaining good employees is essential to the profitability of your business, especially in today's economy. To achieve that goal, you must consider your overall employee compensation plan— not just your pay scales, but your benefits program as well — in comparison to other paper distribution firms.


To help you evaluate your situation, NPTA invites you to participate in the 2014 Employee Compensation Study conducted by Profit Planning Group. Approximately 1,000 firms in more than 30 distribution lines of trade are expected to participate.

The value of this survey to your organization is threefold: 


  1. The results help you determine where your compensation plan stands, not only within the industry, but also compared to other companies in distribution.
  2. The data helps NPTA protect your interests by responding to legislative proposals regarding government-mandated health and leave benefits for employees.
  3. The information helps companies that must prove their compensation is "reasonable" within the constraints of the Internal Revenue Code.
To guarantee complete confidentiality of your company's data, all responses will be sent directly to and compiled by Profit Planning Group, an independent organization that specializes in survey research. Your responses will remain strictly confidential - only the aggregate results of the survey will be released.
To ensure a comprehensive report, we need your participation. You can download the 2014 Employee Compensation Questionnaire in multiple formats for completion.

Survey participants may email their survey submission to by April 15. Survey results will be released in May. 

If you prefer to mail or fax your completed survey, simply download the survey, complete it and send it to Profit Planning Group before April 15, 2014.
