What they say

Global businesses love Remote

  • “We work with 460+ contractors. I’d need to employ 5 or 6 people full time to keep on top of compliance, manage individual invoices, work with accountancy firms and make payments in multiple currencies. Remote has definitely been a timesaver and a money saver for us.”
  • "Remote’s user-friendly Contract Management interface and easy onboarding process simplify the entire contractor management process, and also includes a global payroll solution, which allows us to onboard and pay contractors worldwide in their local currencies efficiently."
  • "If we had to coordinate everything in-house I’d have to hire an extra 4 people to manage the entities, the local solicitors, tax firms, accountants, payroll and translation services: it would cost upwards of $500,000 extra per year. Remote takes that burden off of our plate."

Frequently Asked Questions

"Base pay" is the core income an employee receives, not including bonuses, benefits, or any other financial incentives. In comparison, total compensation encompasses the base pay plus all other perks and benefits, such as health insurance, stock options, and performance bonuses, providing a full picture of an employee's earnings.

Both figures are crucial for employers to stay competitive and for employees to make informed decisions.

The Pay Explorer on Remote provides only base pay information. Our team are on-hand to offer personalised advice on benefits, equity, and incentives if you need support.

With access to transparent pay data from Remote, you can mitigate pay disparities and encourages a more equitable workplace culture.

Yes, the Salary Explorer provides "median pay" figures, which represent the middle value in a list of salaries for a given role and region — half of the data points are higher, and half are lower. This statistic is essential for understanding the standard compensation for a role, helping both employers and job seekers make decisions based on accurate and current market conditions.

To find the annual pay for any role, enter the job title and location into the Salary Explorer. The platform provides a comprehensive breakdown of pay data including starting, median, and top-end figures, which are vital for employers setting new salaries and for employees during negotiations.

The Salary Explorer is fully integrated into Remote's global HR platform, allowing HR professionals to seamlessly access global compensation data alongside other HR functions such as onboarding, payroll, and compliance management. This integration helps streamline multiple HR processes, ensuring that users can manage all their global HR needs in one efficient platform.

The Salary Explorer gives you context on global pay ranges, but navigating the complex landscape of international labour laws can be difficult.

Companies work with Remote Payroll, Contractor Management, and Employer of Record to ensure compliance with minimum wage laws, overtime regulations, and other legal requirements across different countries.

By providing real-time, accurate pay data, the Salary Explorer empowers HR leaders to make strategic decisions that align with both business objectives and employee expectations. This can lead to improved employee retention, more efficient allocation of HR budgets, and better positioning of the company as a competitive employer in the global market.
