Salary Surveyor

The Salary Surveyor allows you to simultaneously see how different background factors (such as position, sector, size of employer and years of work experience) affect your salary. The Salary Surveyor is a tool that draws salary graphs based on your chosen variables.

Salary statistics

From TEK's salary statistics you can find information on salaries based on such factors as position or field of study.

TEK's salary statistics are based on an annual labour market survey.

We also survey the salaries TEK members earn abroad every three years (page in Finnish).   

TEK’s salary statistics contain information on salaries by position and field of study. Our salary statistics are available to our members and can be found here when you log in to the site. If you are not yet a member, join at the top of the page!
