About us


Paylab is an international salary survey platform that collects information on the incomes and bonuses of employees in various positions. Paylab uses a unique methodology for collecting data with a three-phase control and over ten years’ experience. Visitors to the Paylab website or partner sites in their country can easily and anonymously complete an online questionnaire on their salary, and compare their income with the national average for that position. The system always uses current data for the last 12 months. The independent salary analyses are then used by companies for the appropriate internal setting of salary levels for individual work positions.

Paylab has two target groups. The first group are individuals on the labour market who want to know more about salaries for various positions. The second group are companies wanting to ensure fair remuneration rates for employees (Paylab Salary Data) or get market insight through the new market research tool Paylab Data Research.
Paylab salary survey was established in Slovakia in 2007. Profesia (the largest job board in Slovakia) created the methodology for collecting, aggregating and processing the data for Paylab. The salary survey in Slovakia was subsequently complemented by the Balkan States (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bulgaria), Central Europe (Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic), the Baltics (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) and Finland. Nigeria and Ivory Coast are the most recent countries to have joined the Paylab salary survey.

We are still searching for the new partners.

Since November 2012, Profesia has been part of Alma Media – the Finnish media group which has shares in job portals in the Visegrad countries, Baltics, and Balkan States.
