ABSTRACT
The article deals with the Web site workSMART, which offers detailed information on companies in Great Britain. Using financial data from specialist data provider Bureau Van Dijk, workSMART gives visitors to its Web pages the chance to look up a variety of details such as the profits of individual companies, how many people the firm employs and the salary of the highest paid director. By entering the amount they were being paid five years ago, employees can find out how much they would be earning now if their salary had increased at the same rate as that of their top directors. Temporary workers are happier and healthier than permanent workers, according to a research conducted by the Department of Management at King's College London.
