Get an inside look at building industry employee compensation trends across the country with the newly released study conducted by the National Association of Home Builders Economics & Housing Policy Group: The 2014 Single-Family Builder Compensation Study.

Published by National Association of Home Builders BuilderBooks, the study provides compensation and benefits data for 39 common positions at single-family home building companies. The study shows average total compensation and the prevalence of benefits offered to each position by:

  • geographic region
  • 2014 dollar volume
  • number of single-family units started in 2013
  • number of employees on payroll

The study is based on data collected in July 2014 from builders across the country. It’s divided into two sections that present the survey findings from different perspectives:
Compensation and Benefits across 39 Positions—a broad view of the full-time positions at single-family building companies as well as a comparison of total compensation and benefits across positions.

  • Compensation and Benefits by Position—a detailed view of each position’s average compensation and benefits.
  • Results from this survey provide single-family builders with up-to-date information that can be used to benchmark their employees’ level of compensation and benefits.
