A full third of job seekers today say they won’t even go to an interview without having seen the salary first. As the number of U.S. states with salary transparency laws increase — today, the number sits at 17 states, with varying laws ranging from allowing employees to freely discuss their pay to stipulations that require employers to provide candidates with salary ranges — it’s become a hot-button topic.
Even if your company isn’t legally required to abide by salary transparency protocols, what benefits can you still glean by choosing to join this movement? How can you prepare for the scenario that these laws do come to your state? And how can employers navigate some of the challenges associated with this subject, so that they can better practically implement pay equity for all?
In this chat, we’ll be joined by Jill Langhals, Manager of Compensation Services at Employers Resource Association to discuss:
What, exactly, does pay transparency entail, and how can it be used to overcome wage gaps?
What companies need to do to get ready for a pay transparency policy and the challenges they’ll want to plan for (for example, how do you factor in existing employees when implementing a pay transparency policy?)
What pay transparency policies signal about a company’s culture
