Why an Employee's Salary May Be Higher Than Reported by Our Compensation Reports
You're an employer who has market-priced your open positions and employees. Perhaps you used our Salary Wizard Professional tool
(SWP) to do so and found that you have an overpaid employee on your hands. Before you take any drastic action, there are a few important things to remember when it comes to employee compensation.
There are a number of reasons why an employee's current compensation may be higher than the market data in the Salary Wizard. Please remember that being higher than the market numbers shown does not necessitate "overpayment," as half of the people in a given job are paid above the median and 1-in-4 is above the 75th percentile.
