The guarantee of a regular wage paid to one’s account is the main reason why the vast majority of working people still prefer internal employment to freelancing. This is the result of an international Paylab Data Research survey, which took place in May and June 2018 over a sample of 42,800 respondents in 11 European countries. The overwhelming majority of employees (78%) still believe internal employment is a better form of working relationship with an employer than external collaboration (freelancing).
Paylab Salary Checker comes with two innovations. The user can see not only the salary on specific job positions, but also remuneration for related job positions. In addition, users get an overview of the salaries in the regions and other countries. Since December 2016 the app has been available only for Android users in the Google Play Store.
The application has an international utility as it is popular not only in Europe, but also in Turkey with a consistent download rate.
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.
According to Paylab survey, changing job is still the most preferred strategy for employees seeking to increase income. It is much more likely option as initiating a pay discussion and negotiating a pay rise with the boss, especially for those, who feel underpaid. Paylab app wants to help employees to be prepare for such situations with arguments about remuneration of workers on their job positions.
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 and information about the salaries of related job positions. 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 (more than 500 000 respondents) 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.
