In 2024, there are a lot of changes happening in the marketplace that involve salary data:

  • Are you hiring a unique talent with specialty skills that are in high-demand? You may need to move quickly and bump up the base salary to beat your competition with an irresistible offer.
  • Are you hiring like-for-like or are you willing-to-train? You may be able to get someone on the low end of the range if you’ll consider hiring someone with the skills and experience one-step below your job title and offer them the promotional opportunity at your company. Otherwise, Kinsa recommends that you budget for the Median + 10% range to attract the average candidate.
  • Expect to negotiate. You will likely receive a counter from your candidate of choice, don’t get defensive, this is the norm. Most candidates seek at least a 10% increase above their current pay.
