Dollars and Sense

Our 2009 Salary Survey of the Managed Recreation, Sports & Fitness Industry

By Emily Tipping



Respondents are even more cautious looking ahead, and only 44.2 percent expect a higher salary in 2009 than 2008, while just over half (50.2 percent ) expect their salary to remain unchanged. (See Figure 11.)

The average increase among those reporting one from 2007 to 2008, was 3.9 percent. Of those who reported receiving a salary increase in 2008 over 2007, nearly two-thirds (61.8 percent ) said the increase was between 1 percent and 3 percent. Another 28.6 percent reported a salary increase of between 4 percent and 6 percent.
