Pay Equity Tech Comparison

5 reasons to choose Syndio over Gapsquare


Easily manage the complexities of global pay equity at scale: Our powerful software lets you run global analyses by country and across all your employee groups in a matter of seconds, with sophisticated features and visualizations that streamline budgeting, communications, and more. Plus, we’ve spent years refining our pay equity tools alongside many of the world’s largest enterprises — so you know they have the flexibility you want and the credibility you need.


Prevent pay disparities from forming at every stage of the employee lifecycle: Gapsquare can tell you what pay disparities you have, but they can’t help you prevent those disparities from happening in the first place. We’re about action-oriented change, not just checking a compliance box. Syndio offers tools to help assess the effectiveness of your compensation policies and provide competitive and equitable salary recommendations for new hires, promotions, and transfers to proactively prevent pay disparities at every stage of the employee lifecycle.


Access ongoing, integrated support from leading experts: With Syndio, you get access to our team of seasoned, in-house experts in labor economics, workplace equity, data science, employment and labor law best practices, DE&I, and global pay equity. And we don’t stop at traditional “customer support” — we are there with you every step of the way with expert consulting and guidance.


Mitigate legal risk: Unlike other pay equity technology providers, every capability we offer has been validated by legal experts. We’ve spent years refining our process, methodology, and privilege protection to make sure we’ve addressed all the pay equity details that keep lawyers up at night. And with so much legal complexity, choosing a cheaper pay equity tech option can actually come at a high cost.


Close your median pay gaps by improving pay and opportunity equity: Syndio helps you measure, prioritize, forecast, and report on all facets of workplace equity in a single solution — from improving representation in leadership to paying, promoting, and retaining employees equitably. And we don’t stop at simple data outputs that you don’t know what to do with. Our data prep and configuration, granular benchmarking, statistical gaps analysis, and data visualizations are fine-tuned for accuracy and actionability. We designed our platform so you can drill down deep enough to uncover the root causes of disparities.

Don't trust us because we say so. Trust us because they do.

What [Syndio is] doing — which is very pioneering — is giving leaders and HR departments near real-time data on the equity implications of every pay, reward, hiring, and promotion decision."

Josh Bersin
Global HR industry and technology analyst

Syndio has adopted a data-driven approach to pay and workplace equity that could help build a strong foundation for a business's overall HR strategy. The firm offers a streamlined user experience with enough flexibility under the hood to account for outside variables that may be impacting perceived equity issues, improving potential for compliance and auditability — a key demand for HR users."

Build equity into everything you do with the only Workplace Equity Analytics Platform.

After helping hundreds of companies achieve pay equity, they asked us for more — and we delivered. Developed in partnership with HR and Total Rewards leaders, our Workplace Equity Analytics Platform helps companies pay and treat employees fairly from day one to day one thousand (and beyond).

With Syndio, you can:

  • Analyze equity in pay, promotions, performance assessments, and more
  • Prevent pay disparities with recommended equitable ranges for new hires, promotions, and transfers
  • Measure the effectiveness of your pay policies
  • Uncover representation gaps using internal and external benchmarks
  • Incorporate your compensation philosophy into your remediation plan with advanced budgeting tools
  • Explore the differences in outcomes for intersectional groups and drill into individual teams to pinpoint where disparities are most acute
  • Model scenarios and forecast representation changes over time
  • Build a data-driven strategy for reducing median pay gaps
  • Communicate about diversity, pay, and opportunity equity with confidence
  • Assure that your data is secure with our SOC 2 Type II certification

On our DEI roadmap, we knew we wanted to establish pay equity. But what we didn't know was that Syndio insights would benefit other dimensions of DEI. With Syndio, we have become more intentional about building equity in other talent strategies, like development, promotions, and engagement."
