Current approaches to workplace equity aren't meeting the moment

Today's market dynamics are forcing HR leaders to be hyper efficient with their time and their dollars but companies can't afford to not take action against workplace inequity.

As we head into a time of economic uncertainty, HR leaders are struggling with restricted budgets, hiring freezes, and even layoffs. But you're likely finding yourself in a tough spot: Even though you have limited resources, you still have pressure to close your pay gap and meet some difficult goals.

Moving Beyond Pay to Address the Pay Gap

So how do you still ensure you can make a meaningful impact on DE&I goals, drive employee engagement, and retain top talent? This is where workplace equity comes in. A strong workplace equity solution must allow you to:

It may seem daunting to address all these market pressures at once, but workplace equity is not about being perfect right now. It's about having a concrete action plan and being able to show tangible progress and results. That is what your stakeholders really care about.

The worst thing an organization can do is make empty promises around equity. Without being able to demonstrate how equity works and point to specific examples of it in your organization, it's a hollow concept that damages trust and only serves to undercut equity in the end."
