Minnetonka, MN—May 15, 2013—(http://www.napcp.org) Today, the NAPCP launched its 2013 edition of the Salary Survey, aimed at capturing and delivering insight into the Commercial Card and payment industry's wage, role and staffing trends. Previous editions focused on P-Card professionals, but new this year this survey will also include questions for end-user practitioners who manage Travel Card programs, as well as providers currently employed in a relationship management role. The survey is open to NAPCP members and complimentary subscribers through June 5, 2013at www.napcp.org/survey. Those who complete the survey and provide contact information will receive a copy of the results report (planned publication in fall 2013), an invitation to attend a follow-up webinar to discuss results, and credit toward the Certified Purchasing Card Professional (CPCP) credential.
According to Lynn Larson, NAPCP Manager of Education and author of the survey, "This exclusive survey delivers critical data to a niche market of business-to-business payment professionals. Historically, the NAPCP Salary Survey report of results is one of the most popular resources on the website. The NAPCP's member and subscriber base of 13,000 individuals is continually seeking guidance on compensation, optimal staffing levels for Commercial Card programs, and preferred experience and skills for program managers, administrators and support staff. Now, our report will include information for providers in a relationship manager role: average number of clients assigned, percent of time spent on service, sales and education tasks, and whether travel requirements play a role in compensation."
"This year, we are challenging the industry to double the number of respondents who complete this survey," said Diane McGuire, Managing Director, NAPCP. "We estimate that it will take only 15 minutes to answer the questions―the return on this small time investment is immense. With the results report, survey respondents will be equipped with the data they need to appeal to management for evaluation of job duties, optimal staff levels, compensation or support for continuing education."
Individuals are required to become a complimentary subscriber of the NAPCP first (www.napcp.org/JoinNow), then sign in to complete the survey at www.napcp.org/survey.
