When did you last benchmark your compensation package?

Leathwaite has launched The Pay Index – a free to use crowd-sourced compensation tool just for senior executives.

With pay equity legislation being implemented across North America, such as New York’s Intro 1253-A and California’s AB-168, the need for crowd-sourced databases, such as The Pay Index, are essential in helping individuals and companies understand executive compensation.

It takes less than 5 minutes to anonymously share a number of data points and then compare your compensation against the local and global market through several unique interactive reports.

The Pay Index also includes a cost of living comparison tool so you can easily see what you need to earn in another city for the same standard of living.

Visit The Pay Index now to ensure you know your current market worth.
