Workplace Compliance Spotlight: Identifying Wage Inequality through Data Exploration

Achieving pay equity is top-of-mind for organizations. While organizations have always placed substantial value on talent acquisition, expectations for transparency around equal pay have increased. Given today’s war for talent, a commitment to pay equity is one of the easiest ways to differentiate yourself from your competition. But it’s about more than talent – it’s about identifying possible inequitable pay practices you didn’t even know you had. From a compliance perspective, in addition to the federal EEO-1 report, most states have pay equity laws. Tackling the issue proactively can save you from legal problems now and later down the road. Employers may wish to review their current hiring, job evaluation, and pay practices to ensure that they are compliant and defensible. But the complexities in the regulations and the sheer amount of pay data that exists – internally in every organization and externally in the market – can make it difficult for leaders to develop policies to promote and realize pay equity. Watch the next installment in our Workplace...

By Heather Bussing – Part 1 in the ADP Women in STEM series How does an organization change? One conversation at a time. Rita Mitjans, ADP Chief Diversity and Corporate Responsibility Officer, believes that lasting change starts with understanding what needs to change and why. It starts at the top, but you need to win the hearts and minds of everyone involved. Trust is essential, and to earn it, you must do your homework so you can build the case for why the change you are proposing will benefit the things they care about. It takes integrity, hard work, and thoughtful conversations with people experiencing the issues to understand what to do. To inspire real change, you need to make the case in many “languages”. Becoming Bilingual Learning to speak the language of the person she’s working with comes naturally to Rita. When she was seven, her family left their home and everything they owned and were welcomed to the United States as political refugees from Cuba. When they...
