Driving and sustaining change

We help you identify the root causes of pay inequities and the change you may need to make to how pay is managed in order to reduce the risks of inequities recurring. For many clients, this is a journey and can take several years. We support clients in building local buy in, developing manager guidance, accountability and reporting.

Pay equity analytics

Telling your story

Developing a strategy for how and what you will communicate is essential in the success of your pay equity journey. Expectations of pay transparency and the types of internal and external stakeholders you need to communicate to are growing. We work with organizations in crafting how, when and where to tell their fair pay story as well as how to integrate it with their broader equity, diversity and inclusion agenda.
