Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2015 -- For the second time in three years, salaries in 2014 decreased slightly for quality professionals, who said their organization's quality culture plays a key role in the overall satisfaction of their job and salary, according to Quality Progress magazine's 28th annual Salary Survey. PDP profiled the survey in the company blog. PDP Solutions President, Louise Dickmeyer, highlighted the importance of the survey stressing the organization's culture and employee engagement is essential for job satisfaction.
According to the editors of the magazine, unchanged salaries lead to dissatisfaction for some. Responses to the survey show quality professionals are used to getting salary increases. But flat salaries in recent years have left 28.3 percent of respondents unhappy with their salaries. While 61 percent are pleased, nearly 11 percent of respondents were neutral or noncommittal, according to the survey. Of those unhappy with their salaries, some blamed the economy, which still does not seem to allow organizations the luxury of offering raises. Others blamed the lack of value their organization places on quality and those who safeguard it. Many of those unhappy say they have gone more than three years since getting a raise, the results show. Those who claim their salary is directly related to their organization's value of quality said they believe it is a function of an organization's culture of quality.
