What Is the Salary to Hourly?
It is often useful to convert salaries into hourly wages. This formula allows users to do that.
Why Is it Important?
- Employees may consider contracting, but it's not always clear how to compare a salaried offer with an hourly one. This formula allows an apples to apples comparison.
- Employers may consider hiring hourly employees for short-term work, or positions that only require a small number of hours worth of work.
Formula(s) to Calculate Salary to Hourly
- HOURLY RATE = (SALARY + BENEFITS) / (HOURS WORKED PER WEEK * 52 WEEKS PER YEAR)
- Not including benefits
- Not considering that less stability generally results in higher hourly rates
- Not considering the risks or instability associated with contracting
- Not considering possibilities for promotion
- Not considering that many salaried positions can require essentially unlimited overtime without additional pay
- Not considering unbillable hours for hourly employees such as seeking new opportunities
- Not considering fixed expenses for hourly employees such as commuting costs
