Research Your Value with the Academy’s Compensation and Benefits Survey of the Dietetics Profession
Based on the nationwide survey of dietetics practitioners, the Academy’s latest salary survey results have been published. An easy to use summation of the findings, entitled the Compensation and Benefits Survey of the Dietetics Profession, is now available for purchase, at the member price of $20.
Practitioners can use this expansive salary data to better understand the market as it relates to the salary and benefits compensation for a variety of nutrition related positions. Know your compensation package and what is negotiable. If your organization is not able to provide salary or performance increases, it may provide professional development benefits, such as reimbursement for association dues or funding to attend continuing education programs. Use the survey to research your market value and investigate the factors that lead to higher salaries. For example, salaries increased in proportion to number of years of experience, level of supervisory responsibility, budget responsibility, and practice area (consultation and business paying more than clinical). The Compensation and Benefits Survey is available from the Academy online catalog or call 800/877-1600, ext. 5000, and ask for Publication #356808.
