“With how difficult it is currently in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City area to find labor, we have been using the data to give us a hopeful edge on landing new hires. By providing competitive wages along with our excellent benefits package, we can hopefully persuade new candidates to choose AMTek over other potential employers. I also plan on using the data at our year-end wage evaluations as a benchmark on how we can keep our watches in line/exceed market trends. By taking the wage data information and tying it into economic indicators such as the consumer price index, we are able to put more money back into our employees’ pockets that correlates to our company’s global success.” -Ryan Velvick, Director of Finance/HR, AMTek
