Trusaic’s industry-leading pay equity compliance software joins forces with EDGE Strategy’s proven holistic solution to foster more inclusive workplaces
Los Angeles and Zug, Switzerland – (September 14, 2022) – Trusaic and EDGE Strategy (EDGE) announced a partnership today that will empower organizations in the U.S. to achieve and sustain equitable workplaces. With their cutting edge technological solutions, EDGE and Trusaic can help create visible, credible change in workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
Trusaic’s PayParitySM pay equity software enables organizations to identify, monitor and eliminate pay disparities at the intersections of gender, race/ethnicity, age, and disability, and comply with evolving U.S. and international pay equity regulations. EDGE is the leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution to measure, accelerate and certify intersectional equity.
The combined technology resources, knowledge, and expertise of Trusaic and EDGE will enable organizations to identify and deliver their DEI agenda and substantiate progress to internal and external stakeholders. Organizations that work with Trusaic and EDGE may also become eligible for EDGE Certification, the leading global assessment methodology and business certification standard for gender and intersectional equity.
“Today’s labor market is tight, and companies need all the help they can to attract and retain employees, which ultimately fosters a better culture and is better for their bottom line. This partnership with Trusaic will accelerate US companies’ DEI visions into action,” said Aniela Unguresan, CEO of EDGE Strategy. “EDGE’s state-of-the-art technology can holistically assess gender and intersectional equity gaps, and design a roadmap to close the gaps. Together, EDGE and Trusaic enable companies to make meaningful and sustainable progress on workplace DEI.”
“Trusaic helps organizations achieve pay equity and comply with increasing reporting regulations. EDGE tackles representation, strong organizational equity infrastructure and inclusiveness of the culture and provides a gender and intersectionality certification standard,” said Robert Sheen, CEO, Trusaic. “Together, we help employers identify and rectify the internal structures that breed inequality in order to accelerate change.”
More than two-thirds of organizations are failing to meet their own DEI commitments, according to a Trusaic-sponsored survey conducted in partnership with Harvard Business Review Analytic Services and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Numerous studies demonstrate the many business benefits of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace, including increased innovation, productivity, customer satisfaction and revenue. For employers competing for talent in a tight labor market, a fair workplace helps attract top talent, improves retention, reduces turnover costs, and fosters a better culture.
