Employees stay with companies that offer competitive pay. Paying appropriately means you can attract better talent and retain them. Using PerfectWage™ gives you actual market data—which means your hotels will always offer smart, competitive wages that make sense for you and for your employees.


Compare and optimize your hotels side-by-side, position-by-position within each market.  Enable more productive discussions with your managers about labor costs and wage decisions by using peer data along with market comparisons.


PerfectWage™ uses your existing Hotel Effectiveness® data. Both your data and the market data are updated throughout the year. Using our tool, you can avoid having to manually compile, submit and manage surveys to get wage data.  With complete, accurate and current data at your fingertips, you can choose the correct wage for every position at each of your hotels throughout the year.


All PerfectWage™ data is in compliance with the US Department of Justice national antitrust regulations. The data we provide is shown in a blind comparison format, which is compliant with Anti-Trust Safety Zone guidelines.
