However, in this technical age, most companies are still using spreadsheets for compensation planning and reviews!
How Fair Pay Can Make or Break Your Company
There’s more to a job than the money, right? We all want meaningful work where we can feel like we do good work that really matters. We want to be challenged and valued. But at the end of the day, there’s little that matters more than getting paid. Pay is personal.
