What our clients say

“Best and most comparable peer set out there for startups & scaleups…we defined actions around everything from salaries to equity, diversity and work from home based on the insights.”

“The level of detail is exactly right – our benchmarking report is comprehensive but cuts through all the noise and gets directly at the key issues. The benchmarks cover all functions and seniority levels without the distortion of meaningless job titles.”

Naomi Trickey
CPO, Dext


“Incredibly useful insights that had direct implications for our comp structure. Really constructive discussions with the Payspective team. As a CEO and founder who wants to do right by the business and its people, Payspective is exactly what I needed.”

Guillaume Devinat
CEO & Co-founder, Opteo
