Here’s how your pay could be affecting your borrowing ability and terms. While there is an abundance of credit options available on the market today, the ones that you can actually access will depend on a number of factors specific to an applicant. Most people automatically go to their credit scores and history when considering whether they will be deemed suitable for various credit or lending products. While it is certainly an influencing factor, your approval (or even consideration) for loans, consumer credit or even alternative lending is impacted by much more than past payment records.

Employees working in information technology, management and administration have the greatest demand for salary information. This is based on analysis from salary questionnaires completed last year across the entire Paylab network.

Employees most often complete these salary questionnaires when preparing for a job interview or a performance evaluation.

Optimised salaries combined with a good team and corporate culture are the most valuable aspects that influence employee satisfaction. Fun at work is important, because we spend a third of our life working. A humour in the team is an extraordinaly way how to fight against stress and how to recharge energy. Employee salaries remain a top criterion affecting workplace loyalty.

According to the Paylab international salary portal, which has monitored trends in employee salaries at the level of individual positions over the long-term, men receive on average 9 per cent more than women in the same position.

Employees who encounter a diverse mix of people in terms of age, origin and ethnicity, parenthood and physical disabilities at their current workplace have fewer prejudices and are more open to accepting those who are different from them. Workplace experience with diversity helps break down barriers. Those who experience diversity with respect to their fellow employees are up to twice as accommodating and open with respect to a positive perception of marginalised groups at work compared to employees who don’t have the same workplace diversity. This was confirmed in all nine countries that participated in the international Paylab Diversity Study.

The international Paylab Diversity Study shows that four in ten employees in Europe do not experience diversity at their current workplace. This diversity involves the composition of employees at the workplace from a variety of aspects. Paylab focused on 6 key areas: age, maternity, origin, ethnicity or nationality, physical disability and sexual identity/orientation. These aspects often represent a barrier to employment. The goal of the study was to determine the extent to which employees in work teams come into contact with foreigners, members of minority and ethnic groups, persons with physical disabilities, mothers of small children, employees over the age of 55 and persons with a different sexual orientation/identity.

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.
