- In general, the differentials provided by the Global Location Insights tool and the benchmarks in the Employee Compensation product should align. However, the calculated benchmarks incorporate an extra level of granularity, the job level filter, which can affect the slice quality and cause data to be hidden.
- In addition, the calculated benchmarks are derived from either the location aggregation or the location + job family aggregation, depending on which one gives us a more reliable slice. Therefore, a calculated benchmark for a specific location + job family might not necessarily use the same pay differential value as seen in the Global Location Insights tool for that same location + job family.
- Ultimately, because benchmarks and differentials are used in different ways, our standards for reliability across differentials and benchmarking data vary.
- Similarly, there are can be scenarios where we have
Insufficient Datafor a calculated benchmark. This occurs when a calculated benchmark doesn't meet our quality standards. In such situations, we refrain from displaying data for that specific benchmark in order to ensure the data we display is reliable and meaningful.
