PayScale, one of the largest real-time online compensation data sources in the world for individuals and companies, and Workopolis, Canada's premier online job search resource, today announced a partnership that will provide real-time salary tools and career management content to the Workopolis network, Canada's largest job board.

The strategic relationship will offer Workopolis users the ability to determine their current market value with PayScale's Salary Calculator, and receive a comprehensive salary report for free by taking the PayScale salary survey. The PayScale Salary Survey and Calculator pulls information from the PayScale dataset that includes over 10 million unique user profiles worldwide. PayScale will also provide access to innovative career tools, and compelling career management content. In the future, the companies will extend their relationship into the enterprise market where PayScale already works with over 4,000 companies.

"The request for on-point salary information is one of the most common inquiries we receive daily from our network of job seekers," said Patrick Sullivan, President of Workopolis. "The opportunity to move from aggregated salary surveys to the real-time apples to apples match that PayScale offers will set Workopolis apart from other job and career management companies and websites."

Every day many thousands of people take PayScale's salary survey to compare their pay anonymously with their peers and improve their understanding of the job market. PayScale has created the concept of anonymously comparing your salary online - in detail - to other real people with similar individual and job characteristics (e.g.., location, company type and size, job, experience, education, skills, and more.) Using an advanced search and proprietary matching technology, PayScale finds a relevant peer group from their data set that matches the user-provided job information. The system allows every user's job profile to be unique and relevant to his/her different job requirements. This creates a level of accuracy that cannot be achieved with traditional methodologies and allows individuals to better understand earning potential
