Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workplace Equity Forum 2022 - A Coffee Talk

In this week’s Coffee Talk, Margrét comes to us from a hotel atrium in Austin, Texas with highlights from the WorldatWork Workplace Equity Forum.

Coffee Talk between Margret and Henrike.

This conference of business leaders and pay equity experts focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace. So Margrét heard from many companies that had already gone through a pay equity analysis and were on their way to closing their adjusted pay gaps (the differences in pay after accounting for factors like employees’ job roles, skills, and experience). And as the next step in their pay equity journeys, these companies are using DEI to close their unadjusted pay gaps.

So as attendees thought about DEI in the context of pay equity, they discussed a few key questions:

  • What types of DEI efforts are the most meaningful?
  • How can they be implemented?
  • How can their impact be measured?

A second key topic in Austin was pay transparency. In the U.S., new pay transparency laws have been passed in California and Colorado, and companies doing business in the EU need to prepare for pay transparency directives taking effect in a couple of years. 

Much of this conversation focused on how pay transparency starts with a company understanding its own job architecture and why they pay what they pay. 

Then, the company needs to make its pay policies clear enough that it can explain to each employee why their pay is what it is. As Margrét said, “In order to be transparent externally, you have to be ready to have that one-on-one conversation with your employees.”

This is especially the case since, as Henrike pointed out, employers in Germany have noticed that employees want to talk more about money. And this also means that managers will need to be trained to successfully handle conversations with employees about their pay.

The consensus among conference attendees was that this from-the-inside-out approach to pay transparency is a lot of work! But in light of current transparency laws coming into effect and more that will likely follow, starting the transparency process now will make for less stress in the long run.

Ireland Rolls Out New Pay Equity Law

This summer, Ireland implemented a far-reaching pay equity legislation, the Gender Pay Gap Information Act 2021. This legislation requires employers to begin reporting on their gender pay gaps. Companies will need to report differences in the mean and median pay between male and female employees. And if there’s a pay disparity, the company will need to provide a written explanation for it and outline any steps planned to close the gap.
