A technology implementation can be a complex process, and ensuring readiness is crucial for its success. The first step is to understand your organization’s readiness for change by considering key questions we explore in this blog.
Equal Work for Equal Pay
At Vera, “equal work for equal pay” means fostering an environment where pay is driven by one’s title, location, and job function, not by external factors such as market demand for a skillset, previous earnings, negotiation skills, demographics, or anything else.
