Salary for a New Position

You have been working with the HR department in the development of a job description and job specification for a fulltime, entry-level logistics/supply chain management supervisor position at one of your company’s warehouses. Since your boss wants to hire a recent undergraduate college graduate for the position, and knowing that your company tends to “lag the market” in the salaries they offer, HR has asked you to conduct an investigation to determine an appropriate salary range for the new position. “Appropriate” means your boss wants you to justify your salary range recommendation using nationally recognized sources of information.

During your review of literature, you discover the National Association of Colleges and Employees (NACE) 2013 Salary Survey: Starting Salaries for New College Graduates and the Executive Summary, and decide to use it to determine your salary range and as support for your recommendation. Add additional resources /references as required.

What other nationally recognized source of information could you have used in addition to the 2013 NACE Salary Survey to make a salary range determination for the new position?
What other factors might influence your salary range recommendation decision?
