How companies use Pave to better communicate compensation packages to attract and retain top talent
Tech talent is highly sought after. Early and late-stage startups are fighting to land the right talent, and then keep them on their books. On top of that, there’s the rising inflation — with both public and private funding drying up — forcing companies to re-evaluate their compensation packages, and it helps to do so by looking at the industry at large.
Amid this environment, compensation transparency has become ever more important for businesses and workers alike. Workers want to be able to compare their compensation with others performing similar roles at similarly sized companies, while companies want to make sure they’re compensating their talent enough, so they don’t jump ship for better pay.
San Francisco-based fintech Pave is helping both parties achieve that with its real-time compensation benchmarking platform.

Power finds that while credit and debit cards continue to lead in overall use, digital alternatives like BNPL, mobile wallets, and P2P payments are quickly rising in popularity, particularly among younger customers.
Yet, while this growth in digital transactions is undoubtedly making shopping more convenient, it’s also making it easier for consumers to spend beyond their means and make questionable financial decisions.
