Did you know

The average raise an employee receives for leaving is between a 10% to 20% increase in salary – and in some cases this can increase up to 50%

How does it work?

Senior executives from around the world, working within different functions and industries, share anonymised compensation data to see how they compare to their peers, both locally and globally.

The Pay Index verifies the data, before uploading it to our ISO27001 certified encrypted databases, where executives can then access a range of interactive online reports, enabling them to understand how education, tenure, years of experience, gender, sector and other criteria impacts executive compensation levels.

HR Directors responsible for executive hiring, executive talent and compensation, other Business Leaders, then register to access a variety of global executive compensation reports.

What executive compensation data can you access?

After registering, you can immediately compare your compensation against our global database, via a range of reporting criteria, including:

Executive Compensation Compared

Obtaining accurate total compensation data for senior management is difficult, what with limited data available, a relatively scarce data pool, and new legislation making it illegal to ask for compensation details.

The Pay Index is exclusively focussed on the global senior executive / business leader community, making it one of the most comprehensive sources available for executive compensation.

The Pay Index is updated daily and only contains compensation data from the last twelve months, ensuring it is one of the most accurate databases of executive compensation available.

With new legislation being implemented across the USA, such as New York City’s Introduction Number 1253-A, which prohibits all employers from inquiring about a prospective employee's salary history, the need for crowd-sourced databases, such as The Pay Index, will be increasingly important to help companies understand executive compensation.

The Pay Index has a unique feature enabling you to compare executive compensation against a cost of living index for other cities and countries to ensure you know exactly how much the ‘real-world’ income will be for your global executive community.

If your company is making out of industry executive hires then The Pay Index will provide you with an immediate overview of salary, bonus and stock expectations for these less familiar functions and geographies.

The Pay Index contains up to date compensation for the global female executive community, making it an ideal resource for your Human Resource department.

The Pay Index will provide your company with knowledge of executive talent cost and availability in locations you are less familiar with, helping you to budget for and make informed decisions about new geographies.

Keeping our registration process to a minimum, users are able to create and authenticate their accounts, then view our interactive executive compensation data within just 5 minutes.

Data Accuracy

How do you ensure the data, especially compensation data, is accurate?

Because we already have accurate data gleaned over 18 years of operation with Leathwaite from face to face meetings we know the compensation bands across the different functions in different sectors in different geographies. We check the data three ways:

  • We know roughly what each role is valued at, and employ fuzzy logic to identify and recheck suspect data
  • Overnight we check all new data before aggregating it with our data pool
  • We examine outliers on our data set, and remove if appropriate
  • We reiterate to our participants to submit accurate data, so they gain maximum value from The Pay Index
  • Data older than 12 months is either updated or deleted
