2017 California Craft Brewing Industry Compensation Study Now Open for Participation

The California Craft Brewers Association is excited to announce the launch of the 2017 California Craft Brewing Industry Compensation Study.  This study is a critical resource for breweries to rely on in an era of increased industry growth, increased competition for valuable employees and a growing need for employee retention programs. The final study will be complimentary for all participants and released to CCBA members.

As minimum wage and competition increases and breweries continue to grow and consolidate the need to attract, retain, and motivate your employees through your business strategies increases as well.  This study, developed in partnership with FutureSense, LLC, a management consulting firm, will give your brewery the information it needs to ensure that your talent performs at its highest and greatest ability.
