Do you know your worth as a job seeker? Is your current salary/rate what you are actually supposed to be earning based on industry standards? Are you being cheated/exploited by your employer? As an employer, do you consider the salary you pay your employees competitive enough to retain the best hands or good enough to attract qualified candidates? These are crucial questions, which deserve straight-forward answers.

In furtherance of its commitment towards transforming productivity for employees and employers in Nigeria and across Africa, Jobberman Nigeria has launched a salary insights tool. This tool is designed to provide free access to transparent data to ensure jobseekers know their worth as well as ensuring that employers pay market-standard salaries for work done. This will help employers achieve better retention of their best hands.

According to the Jobberman Millennial Workplace Productivity Report, 36% of millennials possess high flight risk and are quite willing to change jobs, that’s not all though. Insights from Jobberman Nigeria’s 2018 report on the Best 100 Companies in Nigeria to Work For showed that salaries contribute to reasons why employees have higher job mobility and poor job satisfaction. 73% of such employees were over 40-year-olds while 59% of them were 31-40-year olds.
