A renewed focus on pay equity at the state and federal levels, coupled with the power of movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp, have companies and their HR/compliance representatives dusting taking a deep dive into pay practices to ensure equity for all. Recent lawsuits settled in favor of plaintiffs, and activist call-outs for companies to be more equitable and transparent about pay practices, add fuel to the fire:
? Seven female law professors at the University of Denver won a $2.6 million settlement in May
? Activist investor Arjuna Capital is pushing major tech firms to publish data to support equitable pay practices
? Google is facing a class action battle over equitable pay practices
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re not on top of this critical issue, you could be next on the list of companies facing legal and public scrutiny. XpertHR can help you wade through the regulatory requirements and practical considerations to audit and revise, as necessary, your pay practices.

To reflect the needs of a diverse global market, companies need to encourage diversity and inclusion within their own organizations.

A two-year research study by Deloitte shows that companies who embrace diversity and inclusion in all aspects of their business statistically outperform their peers.
Deloitte’s findings are in line with research carried out by Sodexo that highlighted the business benefits of gender equality. Workplaces that are gender-balanced show a higher employee engagement (+4 points), a stronger brand image (+5 points), increased gross profit (23%) and consistently higher organic growth (13%).
