Why Pay Equity Matters

Why Pay Equity Matters

February 28, 2017 at 2PM EST

Questions about internal equity and external competitiveness are often the driving forces in discussions with employees about compensation. And with recent research from Aptitude Research Partners showing that compensation, and employees’ perceptions of their compensation, rank as the most influential factors in employee engagement and retention, your organization’s compensation philosophy is more important to your bottom line than ever before.

For current employees and potential future candidates, if compensation is not viewed as fair and equitable, it can lay a foundation of mistrust that will eat away at even the most forward-thinking culture and strongest brand. Yet just 38% of respondents to the Aptitude study said they had a formal process in place to address pay equity issues – meaning more than half of respondents are missing an opportunity to increase engagement dramatically.
