2:50 PM Overcoming Pay Gaps: Developing and Communicating Your Pay Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives in Total Rewards

Securing C-Suite, Board, and/or compensation committee buy-in on new total rewards initiatives can often require a sales approach. However, once you have received their sign-off, to ensure success you must involve your employees in the plan by presenting a clear vision, and its value to them and your organization. During this discussion, we will take a deep-dive into:

  • Ensuring diversity and inclusion are at the forefront of your compensation and benefits strategic vision
  • Creating a talent development plan that is inclusive of your organization’s diversity objectives and measurable 
  • Prevailing pay equity philosophies and implementation strategies: What’s working? What’s not?
  • Demonstrating the reputational value of effective equal pay initiatives to your compensation committee
  • Tracking and communicating outcomes: Measuring your success and addressing your shortcomings
