Gender pay equality is certainly not a new topic but it is one that appears to be being discussed with new urgency, particularly in the U.S.
Whitehouse Station, NJ (PRWEB) April 23, 2015
Pilat, an HR technology solutions company focusing on developing customizable and affordable SaaS Human Capital Management solutions, today announced that they are introducing their proprietary Gauge(R) job assessment and grading software solution in the U.S. effective immediately. The solution has been deployed successfully in the United Kingdom for more than a decade, and is endorsed by the Association of Colleges and the UK National Joint Council for the Local Government Association.
In deciding to expand the product to the U.S., Pilat recognized the need for fair job assessment and grading criteria to help justify positions and the continuing issues regarding pay equality that result from subjective decision-making.
"Gender pay equality is certainly not a new topic but it is one that appears to be being discussed with new urgency, particularly in the U.S.," said Stuart Page, Pilat SVP in charge of Gauge. He added, "The establishment of Gender Pay Equality Day on April 14; the prominent voices escalating behind the need to close the gender pay gap; and the ongoing subjectivity of compensation has led us to advance the availability of Gauge to the U.S. market and from the public sectors of government and higher education to the private sector of business in both the U.S. and the UK."
Incorporating fixed or custom, logic-based factor elimination schemes that enable objective evaluations of job and skill-set requirements, the cloud-based Gauge solution is customized to each user, and is modeled by a Pilat-trained consultant as part of the engagement.
