Wage360™ provides, fully-loaded wage costs analysis to include: itemized base salaries, bonuses, taxes, fringe benefits, incentives, transportation, English speaking Levels 3-5 wage costs data, and sector/country/city specific hidden cost items. Attrition rates, trends, and hidden factors driving human capital operation costs are available to subscribers.

Performing the most sophisticated current and historical wage cost and talent density research, the company's data engine provides decisioning and predictive wage-cost data analyses to subscribers in a quick, reliable and moderately priced offer. Data is provided on 150 global Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities across the 50 countries -- including the U.S. -- at the heart of competing in the service globalization (outsourcing) trade. Zagada database also monitors the talent hiring activities of almost 10,000 small, mid-size and large service providers globally, thus allowing its Wage360™ service to run useful and timely wage-cost projection analysis city-by-city -- and even by city area -- for clients.
