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.
