Mac’s List Now Requires Salary Information on Job Board Listings

New Feature Aims to Streamline Recruitment Process and Benefit Job Seekers

Mac’s List is happy to announce we have updated our platform with a built-in function that requires all job postings to include salary information. 

This move reinforces our commitment to promoting transparency in the job market and aims to facilitate a more efficient and equitable hiring process for both employers and job seekers.

While many of you have voluntarily adopted this practice, the new functionality ensures consistent adherence to salary transparency. In a recent Mac’s List hiring survey, 90% of respondents said they already included salary information in their job postings.

The mandatory inclusion of salary information saves time for both parties involved in the hiring process. For employers like you, research shows that including salary information attracts a greater number of qualified candidates. Meanwhile, job seekers can focus on opportunities that align with their salary expectations and career goals.

The mandatory inclusion of salary information reduces pay gaps across gender and racial lines, improves recruitment and retention, and increases employee satisfaction

Salary transparency is becoming a growing practice in the Pacific Northwest and across the country. Pay transparency laws took effect in Colorado in 2021, New York City in 2022, and California, Washington, and New York states in 2023.

It’s only a matter of time before this is required by law in Oregon, but we don’t think we should wait. Making this change now will help both job seekers and employers.

Mac’s List remains committed to fostering a fair and efficient job market in the Pacific Northwest. If you have any questions about this change, please email me at mac@macslist.org.
