Why Use This Worksheet
The default approach to compensating talent isn’t equitable. So we can’t use the old rules and systems and expect different results. We empower social impact organizations like yours to reimagine the process, beginning by wrestling with the big questions—such as whether you pay people based on merit, experience, or both—to ensure decisions are grounded in your values. The worksheet beginning on the next page is intended to help you assess the extent to which your compensation program aligns to the core pillars of compensation equity we recommend to all our clients. We recommend you work with a diverse group of 3-5 colleagues from management as well as your HR/People team to work through this exercise together. When you’re done, take a look at our Compensation Philosophy Worksheet to explore how your beliefs about compensation impact your policies.
