There are multiple reasons why one employee may be legally paid less than another, but pay differences become problematic when they are influenced by gender, race or other characteristics. Although the gender pay gap is closing incrementally, pay parity between men and women still exists. There are three compelling reasons for companies to conduct equal pay analyses:
1. Fairness: Rewarding your employees for what they produce, and not who they are, is the right thing to do.
2. Talent strategy: A commitment to equal pay attracts a high-performing workforce, increases employee engagement and reduces attrition (underpaid employees are 22% more likely to quit than similar people in the same job).
3. Risk management: New regulations and shareholder activism have increased the risks posed by unaddressed pay gaps. Learn more about the issue and how tech companies are addressing it.
You will gain an understanding of the current regulatory and stakeholder environment surrounding equal pay and be able to identify common drivers for pay differences, particularly for women in technology. Get exposure to how other companies are taking on this issue, including a look at the analytics to assess pay differences.
