Annual salary surveys have become a common tool for Human Resources to analyze compensation and set pay levels based on region, skill level, industry and company size. But the explosion of the "gig economy" and the high demand for “skilled labor” has caused companies to rethink their strategy. Now more than ever, companies are looking for current market information in order to hire and retain top talent… and they need both salary and contingent labor rates.

Antiquated annual salary surveys are just not able to keep up with the high demand for skilled workers. Companies like PeopleTicker provide real time rate information that is easy to use, provides both salary and contingent pay rates, and job definitions that reflect market needs.
