Business & Legal Reports, Inc. (BLR) has launched SalarySearch.com, a new free online service that allows employees and employers to look up salary information for a job.
"We have been collecting compensation information from thousands of companies each year for decades," says BLR's founder and CEO Robert L. Brady, "But previously we issued this data only in a lengthy report exclusively for employers. SalarySearch.com is a logical new use of this massive database."
An employer or employee can receive one free salary report. The report reveals the full range of salaries the job is commanding at other organizations, from the top 10th percentile down to the bottom 10th percentile. The site is powered by Compensation.BLR.com, where employers get unlimited salary reports, as well as other resources, including tools and legal analysis.
Josh Baker, product manager at BLR, says that there are 2,400 job titles available on SalarySearch.com.
"This information helps employers know they're paying competitively so they can acquire and retain the best talent, but without overpaying," notes Baker. "Meanwhile, jobseekers and current employees know what to ask in job applications, performance reviews, and salary increase discussions. So when the boss says, 'what are you looking for?,' workers can back up their answer with comparative data."
