Salary differences between men and women are a persistent global issue referred to as the “Gender Gap”. Almost everywhere in the world, the average salary of men is higher than that of women. This is, to a large extent, caused by the fact that women generally work in professions with lower financial compensation. The distribution of women across the individual salary brackets is significantly different than men. While a significantly higher percentage of women perform work falling within the lowest income group, at the same time, compared to women a higher percentage of working men perform work for which they receive the highest salary in the market.

Salaries for employees in the trade sector (wholesale and retail) are considerably imbalanced in the Czech Republic - significant differences are primarily between the capital and the rest of the country. An examination of statistical salary differences by regions reveals that total salaries for trade employees in Prague are up to 43% higher than in other regions, which equates to around CZK 9,833 more for employees in Prague.

The most important criteria for employees when choosing a new job is clearly a better salary compared to what they currently earn. More money and financial benefits are the deciding factors for 63 per cent of employees when choosing between different jobs. A higher salary is the key criterion in up to three quarters of all cases involving those feeling underpaid. An attractive job description is the second most important factor considered when making a career change decision. More engaging work is a strong motivating factor for change for those who are satisfied with their current salary. This is associated with the third strongest criterion, an inspiring and stimulating environment, where an employee can make the most of their knowledge and skills.

Every other employee in the Baltics and Central Europe considers their income to be inadequate with regard to job position. The highest rate of salary dissatisfaction was expressed by employees in Slovenia and Lithuania, where six out of ten employees consider their salary to be inadequate. The lowest rate of salary dissatisfaction was by employees in Finland, where only four out of ten employees feel underpaid. This is the result of the current international Paylab survey.

Employees who feel underpaid are much more likely to look for a new, better-paid job as the most viable/acceptable way to increase their income. This option is favoured by 65%, i.e. the majority, of employees who regard their income as inadequate with regard to their job position. This is the result of the current international Paylab survey.

Expected vs Real Salaries – What to Consider During a Career Change?

Analysis from Paylab, an international salary portal, suggests that people who are entering the labour market for the first time have the most ambitious expectations with regard to their salaries. The older the job applicants are, the more realistic are their salary expectations. In addition, they have a tendency to undervalue their potential salary at a job position with which they had no prior experience. The most ambitious salary expectations can be seen with employees under 24 years old. On average, Generation Z – that is, current graduates and labour market newbies – expect a salary that is about 9 percent higher than real salaries in this age group.
