Human Resources

FPA provides valuable research and is responsible for promoting a general understanding of the flexible packaging industry human resource issues by gathering, analyzing, and disseminating industry compensation and benefit benchmark data, providing networking opportunities for industry human resource professionals, and serving members with a forum to address key industry human resources issues.

Flexible Packaging Industry Compensation Report

FPA publishes the Flexible Packaging Industry Compensation Report on an annual basis. Surveys are sent to FPA converter member companies, and only those companies who return completed surveys are eligible to receive the report. The Compensation Report provides participating members a wealth of information regarding both hourly and salaried flexible packaging compensation and benefits data.

Workforce Development Within the Flexible Packaging Industry

FPA continues research and publishes reports on workforce development issues within the industry. A recent report, Flexible Packaging Industry: Addressing Workforce Issues conducted for FPA by the National Association of Workforce Boards details how to hire veterans, develop an apprenticeship program, and institute industry sector recruitment strategies. The Report includes an extensive list of national and other related resources. 

The FPA also developed a brochure that promotes the great career opportunities available in the flexible packaging industry. The brochure was developed by the FPA Career Development Task Group and is a great reflection on our industry, capturing the exciting futures the industry has to offer for a wide range of career paths.

We also recently developed a microsite that links to FPA Member Career/Employment sections of their websites. For more information, please click here.
