The gender pay gap continues to appear in the headlines. At work, however, this thorny issue remains taboo. Have you ever wanted to learn the facts? Do you wonder how pay gap audits work? Do you want to learn how to talk about pay at work?

Gender pay equity is a discussion topic relevant not only from a compliance standpoint but also from a talent management one. Employers need to hire and retain the best talent to build and grow their businesses. Looking at the employer-employee relationship from various angles means that gender pay equity is a real and relevant part of today's business practices.

Current news reports and personal experiences voiced in social media confirm that there is a gender gap in how workers are paid. While it is still unclear as to how prevalent and wide that gap is across the labor market, it is startlingly clear that employers need to take steps to uncover and close any gender pay gaps they have. Risks abound for lack of action including litigation exposure, low employee engagement, and lack of productivity and profits in overall business performance. In today's dynamic labor market, it can even mean your most valuable employees quitting in dissatisfaction.
