Two-thirds of North American health clubs offer employees a retirement plan, according to the IHRSA 2017 Health Club Employee Compensation & Benefits Report, which details compensation data for nearly 60 job titles. The report, released Tuesday, provides salary and compensation results based on data from more than 200 North American facilities.
“Payroll is one of the largest expenses among health clubs, as hiring and investing in staff plays a critical role in serving and retaining members,” said Jay Ablondi, IHRSA’s executive vice president of global products. “IHRSA has regularly conducted employee compensation research for more than 15 years to help club operators analyze and gauge their compensation practices against other club businesses.”
The new report provides compensation data such as base salary and total compensation for club and executive-level staff as well as hourly pay and commissions data for club-level employees. Data on medical insurance, retirement plans, leave days, and other benefits are also analyzed in the report.
