Malta's Online Salary Benchmarking Tool

A decade ago companies which could afford it had teams of compensation analysts whose sole job was to look at salary data and employee demographics. During the last financial crisis, analysts found themselves out of the organization as companies realized it was a "nice thing to have" vs the cost of maintaining it. Often because the data from a relatively small sample (i.e. from the organization itself or from interviews held by its recruiters) came back months later and required lots of adjustments; a company ended up overpaying some employees and underpaying others. Markets are dynamic and salaries are too, and this aged and adjusted data wasn't keeping up with the demands of constant change and volatility in the job markets. is addressing this dynamic and is able to provide affordable compensation data to companies, which is constantly being updated as more companies share their data on this system.
