The role of data, analytics, and technology 

Data, analytics, and specialized technology are vital to achieving pay equity because they allow organizations to understand their compensation philosophies and practices in real-time. Being able to assess compensation continuously like this can help resolve pay disparities, strengthen workforce representation, and ensure opportunity equity across the entire workforce. Besides reducing pay equity concerns, like wage compression, specialized software can help organizations proactively address increasing pay equity regulations, such as posting salary ranges in job listings as required by various state pay transparency laws.
