"I have always found my experience with TAP Network to be incredibly valuable, for both my organization and for myself personally. The networking opportunities, learning opportunities and ability to socialize with people in my industry (especially as I often work alone or in a small team) have been wonderful. I would credit TAP Network as having had a big positive impact on my career.”
"TAP Network’s Tech Salary Survey is one of the most comprehensive and robust compensation analysis tools our organization have come across. … The data is specific to location, organization size and industry which helps us benchmark accurately and ensure we remain competitive in the local market. We have been utilizing the Tech Salary Survey since 2016 and this product has become our main compensation analysis tool.”
Olga Radutsky Human Resources Manager, Reliable Controls
"If enough people ask a question, they’ll just do a mini survey and ask all the companies ‘hey, what are you doing about this?’ and then you can get that data back. The flexibility and responsiveness of people to share data and the organization’s ability to aggregate it and send it back is so valuable.”
Megan Richardson HR Business Partner, Phoenix Labs
