InfoShot: Tech CEO pay vs. workers

How do CEO's salaries compare to their workers?

In the past it was hard to accurately report the ratio of CEO pay to average worker pay. But now the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has established new rules which will require a public company to disclose the compensation of its CEO to the median compensation of its workers. Companies will have to do this from January 1st 2017 onwards.

Glassdoor has unique insight into worker pay and using its data, has put together some figures to show what the ratio of CEO pay to median worker pay could look like once the rules by the SEC goes into play. Of course, some companies listed on Glassdoor have more salary details than others. But Glassdoor says that to ensure statistical reliability, it “include[s] only companies with at least 30 salary reports on Glassdoor.”
