Paylab, an international salary portal, launched the Paylab Salary Checker - a mobile app allowing users to compare salaries. The app is free and available for download at the Google Play Store. The app allows you to be constantly fed information about salary developments for a particular position in a specific country. All work has its value, hence you should have constantly updated information about your value on the labour market.

The mobile app builds on the Paylab salary portal, making this service more personalized for employees by providing them with regular salary updates.

Salary information is seen as a very sensitive topic. That is why Paylab launched this anonymous service where individuals can compare their salary with other employees in a given country in a safe and secure manner. Information provided becomes an indispensable aid for the app user in job interviews, evaluation interviews, and pay rise negotiations

How does the app work and who is it for?

After completing the information necessary to compare salaries, the app user receives information about the average monthly salary for his/her position, in the particular region or country. The user can also opt to receive regular updates every time a new respondent with the same position completes his/her salary details, comparing the user's salary with that of the new respondent.

In countries where Paylab doesn't yet have sufficient respondent data, after completing the necessary input data, the user is provided with useful tips for salary negotiations. Users also find out what percentage of respondents in Paylab's global database earn less than them. Paylab will provide the user with a salary comparison for the specific position and region as soon as it has sufficient data from other respondents in the given country.

The data used in the salary comparison is updated every month. Every three months, the system automatically informs the user about the current average salary for his/her position. The app is secure and guarantees maximum data confidentiality.

The app is for all employees who want the bigger salary picture, who are unsatisfied with their salary and want to do something about it, and those looking for a job and wanting to know the value of labour for a particular position.
