The annual LBA Salary and Benefits Survey is a compilation of current salaries and benefits for common positions within Louisiana's financial institutions.  The survey can be a vital tool when determining competitive pay and benefits for employee recruitment and retention.

All LBA members are invited to participate in the survey, and those participating receive a complimentary copy of the survey report. Non-participating member banks are able to purchase the survey for $275; non-member cost is $375.

For more information on purchasing a survey, contact Ginger Laurent at or (225) 387-3282. The survey includes an average annualized base salary, actual high salary, actual low salary and average bonus for each position. These positions are categorized two different ways: asset size and nearest metropolitan area. There is also information on retirement, health, dental and life insurance in the benefits category.

Disclaimer: Please note that the LBA offers the Salary Survey to LBA member financial institutions through the use of an online survey tool called Survey Monkey. Survey Monkey analyzes the data and converts some of it into graphs. Data provided by LBA members participating in the salary survey is also provided to an outside third-party human resources consultant who will review the data for irregularities and prepare an executive summary. The LBA does not analyze, alter or edit any of the salary data submitted by the LBA members, nor does the LBA participate in the review of data or writing of the executive summary.
