Last week, the Next Level Purchasing Association (NLPA) released its annual Purchasing & Supply Management Salaries report.  It contained some surprising – perhaps even shocking – statistics and analysis about salary trends in our profession!

Have you ever wondered:

  • How much have purchasing and supply management salaries increased in the past year?
  • What is the difference in pay between male and female purchasing and supply management professionals?
  • In what industries do purchasing and supply management professionals make the most?  The least?
  • Would earning a procurement certification be worth the time and (if you have to fund it yourself) the money?

The report answers all of these questions and many more.  It is available at no charge to both Basic and Premium Members of the NLPA and Basic Membership itself is instant and doesn’t cost a cent!

If you’re already a member, simply go to the Library tab after logging in to the NLPA website to find the report.

I hope that you enjoy the report.  And, more importantly, I hope that you can use the report to ensure that you are being paid what you are worth!
