Pragmatic Solutions to Achieve Pay Equity
Your organization is committed to Equal Pay and a diverse workforce but has not fully achieved either. You are not alone. Many organizations are working towards these, as yet, elusive goals. EPN employer’s consulting will help. Based on the strategic offensive principle, EPN Equitable and Inclusive Strategic Offensive Packages will 1) train, 2) find where you have steps in processes that are susceptible to bias and recommend solutions, and 3) implement improvement by creating checks and balances against such bias. Your best offense is a good defense in sports and war….and equal, diverse, and inclusive employment.
You’ve spent thousands even millions of dollars on programs to have management and leadership embrace equity, diversity, and inclusion. After 40 years of diversity training, the data is mixed on its effectiveness. More importantly, representation of women, people of color, people with disabilities, and the LGBTQ community have not come close to proportionate levels of their presence in society. Women are 51% of US population yet only 25 of the CEOs at Fortune 500 companies. Nearly 15% of the US population is black but only 4 Fortune 500 CEOs are. And let’s face it, that is the true test of the effectiveness. Does your company’s leadership look like the world we live it or does it look like the Mad Men leadership team?
Time to take a new approach. Let’s acknowledge that somewhere in your company are people making decisions who have biases. Instead of trying to change them, let’s protect all employees by creating checks and balances to minimize and eliminate biased (conscious and unconscious) decisions.
