Make Data Driven Decisions

Having business data at your fingertips allows you to make informed decisions in any area of planning for your company, and deciding how to allocate payroll, raises and advancement opportunities should be no different. Not only does tying rewards in the workplace directly to data-driven key performance indicators help ensure equity among your team, it ultimately allows you to put your company in the best place to perform at a high level.

Create a Payroll Policy

Each aspect of your payroll policy should be written down, visible to your team and followed exactly. If you don’t have a payroll policy or your current policy is lacking, taking the time to craft one which promotes payroll equality should be a must. When crafting this policy, metrics like performance, frequency of audits and what qualifications are necessary for advancements and bonuses should all clearly be spelled out.

Audit Your Payroll

Auditing the amount of money each team member is paid and comparing it to other team members in your company and with data from comparable businesses is the best way to catch discrepancies in payroll equity. By making regular audits part of your payroll process, you take another step in ensuring no bias or favoritism is being shown without merit.

Practice Pay Transparency

Recent legal action has made it a requirement for employers to post salary ranges on open positions in many states, but you don’t have to wait for legislation to begin practicing payroll transparency. While we aren’t suggesting every single employee salary should be public knowledge, what would be beneficial is for everyone in the company to understand the range for a given position, what impacts where someone falls in said range and how bonuses and advancement opportunities are earned. By being transparent, it’s much harder to be unequal.
