SEATTLE, WA and CARLSBAD, CA – October 2, 2007 –PayScale, the largest real-time online compensation data source in the world for individuals and employers, and Adicio, the leading provider of private label job-board platforms for media companies, today announced a strategic relationship to provide PayScale’s leading web-based salary tools to Adicio’s 300+ online careers customers. Adicio’s job-board clients will be able to integrate PayScale’s comprehensive set of salary tools, including its real-time salary calculator, into their job-search results for candidates to access with a single click.

“The PayScale-Adicio partnership is an exciting one: We will provide media companies' career sites with valuable, real-time, national and local salary information. Our collaboration will let job seekers and employers get the specific salary match they are looking for,” said Michael Metzger, CEO and President, PayScale.

PayScale launched the concept of anonymously comparing salaries online – in detail - between individuals with similar job characteristics (i.e., 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, thus creating a level of accuracy that cannot be achieved with traditional methodologies.

“Our partnership with PayScale gives Adicio a valuable resource integrated into their job-search results: accurate and actionable salary tools that help visitors make smart career decisions,” said Tony Lee, Chief Alliance Officer, Adicio. “PayScale’s innovative use of technology creates a powerful salary management tool for career sites that leverage the Adicio platform.”
