​Kienbaum Compensation Portal now includes compensation data for Spain

Wages in Spain: Kienbaum expands its compensation database

Gummersbach, 20 January 2015 The compensation portal of the consulting specialists at Kienbaum now includes information about wages and employee benefits in Spain: A total of 26,000 data sets for 350 Spanish businesses. The Kienbaum Compensation Portal is a TÜV-certified compensation database with more than 600,000 individual entries. The new data comes as a product of Kienbaum’s cooperation with the Spanish consultancy firm CEINSA.

“Including salary data from Spain is an important step in our growth strategy for our compensation consulting business in Western Europe. More and more companies are operating with several sites across Europe. They want to offer their people on the ground a fair wage, but they might not know the amount or usual components of compensation beyond Germany’s borders. That is where we come in – with our data that also covers Switzerland, Austria, and many other countries in Central and Eastern Europe“, Julia Zmítko, Head of Data Management at Kienbaum, explains.

The Compensation Portal of Kienbaum currently serves more than 400 corporate clients and has increasingly been in demand by international businesses. The new data for Spain is fully integrated in the portal’s familiar search and query functionality. The official data for the IBEX-35 companies has also been integrated in the Kienbaum Board Remuneration Analyser, a unique query tool for remuneration at the highest level of management.

“We are convinced that our data offers companies in Spain a great tool for their compensation decisions. The positive feedback from our loyal clients has encouraged us to expand our services in Western Europe – and we are taking a major step in that direction today”, says Julia Zmitko.
