Josh Bersin names Syndio a leading pay equity tech provider.

In a time of high inflation and unprecedented levels of pay transparency, it's not just the level of pay that matters to workers, but the perceived fairness of pay. 

Global HR analyst Josh Bersin's newest research1 on pay equity finds that "workers are six times more impacted by pay equity than they are by level of pay. In other words, if you want to properly allocate budgets, fix the disparities in pay before you give everyone a raise."

Only 14% of companies use specialized technology for pay equity.

And those that do are:

  • 3.2 times more likely to engage and retain employees
  • 7 times more likely to attract needed talent

equity above all"

Pay equity must be ongoing

"This is not a one-time intervention. In 2023 it's important to revisit pay practices in a systemic way… Every time a new person is hired, promoted, or moved, your pay system may need adjustment."
