Our mission

The non-profit WageIndicator Foundation's mission is to: Shara & Compare. More labour market transparency for the benefit of all employers, employees and workers worldwide by sharing and comparing information on wages, Labour Law and career.


The very concept of the WageIndicator requires the data needed for the calculation of salary checks and living wages to be volunteered – anonymously – by visitors to our sites and renumerators with our apps. Although the dataset is cleaned, scientifically checked and benchmarked, no responsibility can be taken for its being 100% accurate. Nor can the Foundation, or persons involved in developing and maintaining the sites, be held responsible for any actions, conclusions or advice based on the data or informational items published on the sites. The content of third-party sites referenced to or linked through the WageIndicator sites, is the sole responsibility of those parties.We take great care in developing and maintaining the WageIndicator sites and data. However, visitors to the WageIndicator websites can in no way derive any rights from this data. Email addresses volunteered by visitors/respondents to the questionnaire are stored separately from the data related to their working hours, latest salary or any other personal information they might have volunteered anonymously. For more details on our policy safeguarding the privacy and anonymity of our visitors and respondents to the questionnaire, please consult our datapolicy.If, in your opinion, the WageIndicator sites include any page, document or other item that contains incorrect information, please let us know.
