Pay Equity Conversations Don't Have to be Uncomfortable

Pay Equity Conversations Don't Have to be Uncomfortable

Talking about pay and benefits can feel like a minefield of unspoken employee expectations and long-embedded company policies, all wrapped up in budget realities. But figuring out how your team members really feel about compensation is key to developing impactful strategies to hire and keep your best people—even in a rocky economy.

On September 29 at 10:00 AM PT, we’re excited to host a candid conversation on pay equity as part of our HR Disruptors series, with CEO & Global Executive Coach at Divinely Powered Hakemia Jackson, Bonfire Chief People & Culture Officer Becky Lakin, and Diversity Window CEO Jiquanda Nelson.

Join us to learn how to identify gaps with your existing pay structures, build fair strategies that support your company goals and culture, and honestly — and compassionately — navigate tough conversations with your leadership team and employees.
