Wage Inequity Is Not Just a Compliance Issue—It’s a Talent Management Problem


Recent discrimination lawsuits filed against Nike, Spotify, and Google demonstrate how critical it is for employers to not only understand the gender pay gap but also to act swiftly to close it. The gender pay gap is still a misunderstood area of workforce management, but the associated legal liability and other costly consequences are very real.

Join human resources expert Melveen Stevenson to gain practical information and recommendations for understanding your organization’s legal obligations related to gender pay equity. You’ll also learn how to improve your talent management practices to hire and retain employees for company productivity and success.

After all, employers that don’t take action to expose and close their internal wage inequity risk more than litigation—including low employee engagement and retention, lack of productivity, and depressed profits. That’s why gender pay equity is not just a compliance issue—it’s a talent management problem, too. Just take the recent staff shakeup at Nike as an example: A dozen top executives have left the company following the class action lawsuit.

After attending this session, you’ll understand the finer points of gender pay equity, including the legislative requirements affecting your hiring, transfers, promotions, and compensation decisions. You’ll walk away with a plan to establish recruitment/retention programs for long-term fairness, productivity, and success. You’ll also understand how other companies are addressing their pay inequities so that you take appropriate steps to do the same—and head off trouble.
