Challenge
In-house pay equity analysis model ran its course

Salesforce initially handled pay equity in-house, using a model built by their data science team. But as the company grew and the team advanced their thinking on pay equity, it became clear that maintaining the model internally had run its course.

"The bigger we got and the more global we got, the more challenging it became to do this in-house," explains Dunlap. Salesforce decided to partner with a proven expert in pay equity to ensure agility and effectiveness as they scaled.

Solution
Two priorities: expertise plus technology

Having a third-party partner like Syndio has allowed us to comfortably focus not on the technology and stats behind the tool itself, but on our strategy and how we approach this for employees. We rely on Syndio to help drive the machinery behind it."
