What would happen if someone leaked one's company's full compensation information to their entire company? A growing number of companies—both in and out of games—are choosing to intentionally do just this.
Pay transparency has been shown to reduce gender wage gaps, fight against structural inequalities, reduce recruiting costs, increase retention, and is better aligned with workplace expectations for the Millennial and Gen Z generations. In short, it's better for both the employee and the employer, and it can play an important role in creating a more equitable and diverse industry.
In this talk, Matt Schembari, CEO at Lightforge Games, will share the research on open salaries along with the current state of the open salary movement, and he'll provide concrete benefits and challenges from Lightforge's experience practicing open salaries over the past three years.
Attendees will learn what an open salary policy looks like, the current state of the growing movement, and the research behind its benefits to creating a more fair and equitable workplace. In addition, attendees will hear concrete benefits and challenges from Lightforge's experience practicing open salaries.
This is for decision-makers for compensation policies, equitability advocates, and anyone interested in fair compensation practices.
