How Do Your Salary & Benefits Stack Up Against Your Peers?
The Hand Therapy Certification Commission (HTCC) has performed four salary surveys since 2004 and is currently performing our fifth survey. HTCC collects data on salaries and benefits for Certified Hand Therapists in addition to therapists who do not have the CHT credential. The purpose of the survey is to obtain information frequently requested by therapists and employers, to serve as a resource to the hand therapy community by sharing this information and to provide ongoing data.
The current survey will run through May 10, 2013, and HTCC will grant one hour of continuing education for completing the survey. CHTs can submit this hour in Category G for recertification. An outstanding response rate is essential in order to have the most comprehensive results, so if you have not done so, please take a moment to complete the survey by clicking here.
As in previous years, this year’s survey will compare salaries of CHTs vs non-CHTs, by years of experience and by regions of the US and Canada, as well as Australia, New Zealand and the European Union, depending on the response rates from these countries. The survey will also compare benefits received, including continuing education benefits received and how continuing education benefits are paid.
The final survey report will be compared to the 2011 survey and will be available for free as a downloadable PDF to CHTs and ASHT members. Once again, please take a moment to complete the survey so that we will have a high response rate to have the most valuable information to share with you.
