Leverage the 2021 Salary Survey Report as a salary benchmarking tool to remain competitive and ahead of the curve as a packaging industry professional.
“We are so excited to be able to offer such important information to the packaging community again this year! This 2021 Salary Survey report offers packaging professionals the opportunity to understand how their salary compares to those of their peers in the packaging industry,” says Jane Chase, executive director, IoPP. “It also shines a light on the fact that both IoPP members and those who have earned IoPP’s Certified Packaging Professional (CPP) designation earn more on average than their non-member, non-certified counterparts. Yet another reason why becoming a member of IoPP is a worthwhile investment that pays off.”
