I have seen several posts recently questioning when to hire an employee and what the pay and benefit package should be. The answers from colleagues have been interesting and very diverse. This prompted me to do some investigation.
It’s OK to be generous, but it’s important that the pay is appropriate for the position. There are many resources on the web but some of them lead to sites that want you to hire them to be your employee manager or to post jobs. The most unbiased and independent site I have found is the Occupational Outlook Handbook – Bureau of Labor Statistics https://www.bls.gov/ooh/. It gives the average wage for every occupation and can be sorted by geographical location.
