Get your foot in the door – Salary Calculator

As many of you will know I’ve been job hunting over the past few months as a result of losing my job in mid-July. There are many challenges with job hunting one of which is figuring out what each salary will actually provide in terms of ‘take home’ pay.

That’s why I was very pleased to discover the app below. It allows you to enter a monetary figure, choose whether it’s an annual, monthly, daily or even hourly figure and then provides you with a ‘take home’ figure taking into account the usual deductibles, you can even input any pension % deductible and it will take that into account.

If you suspect that people within your organisation would find this of benefit then you’ve got a wonderful opportunity to ‘get your foot in the door‘ and prove the worth of performance support via mobile devices.

Why not take a look at these apps and consider whether you might want to direct your colleagues towards them.

iOS app (iPhone) – £FREE (I’m personally using this app)

Android app – £FREE (I haven’t used this app myself, but its features very closely resemble the iOS app I use)

Inevitably there will be some people who do not have a mobile device and will bemoan the fact that you are offering their colleagues who do have a mobile device something that they themselves are unable to benefit from – don’t let this put you off.

Simply tell them to carry on using whatever tool or process they have always used – simples!!!

And you know what? Even if people don’t opt for these apps, you may have just sewn the seeds for them to look for an alternative….

Good luck and let me know how you get on
