2015 Salary Survey Results, Part 3

In keeping with our annual tradition, we asked respiratory care and sleep medicine professionals across the country to help us get to the bottom of compensation and career trends. And now, with the results in, the numbers collected, analyzed and otherwise crunched, it’s time to see what we can all learn from the results of our 2015 salary survey.

This year, we heard from nearly 1,000 respiratory and sleep professionals from all over the U.S., and it appears this past year has been a good one for your colleagues. Following is just a snippet of what you’ll find in Part 3:

If this year’s survey had a theme it might easily be “longevity.” A whopping 84% of respondents to our survey have been working at the same facility for more than five years.

Eighty-five percent of our survey takers said their employer pays at least 50% of their premiums for major medical, dental and vision insurance.

Working hard pays off, according to our survey, as 57% of our respondents reported receiving an increase in salary that was a “merit raise.”

Eleven percent of our salary survey respondents said they plan to retire within 5 to 10 years; another 11% intend to do so within 1-5 years.
