TalentGuard Enhances Talent Management Suite to Help Companies Address Critical Skill and Gender Pay Gaps
Austin, Texas – August 13, 2018 – TalentGuard Inc., a global provider of predictive career pathing and talent management software, today announced updates to its flagship talent management suite that will better help companies identify skill and gender pay gaps within their organizations. The comprehensive suite has fair assessment at its core, making it easier for current customers to meet increased requirements of state and local pay equity laws.
“In this series of updates to our talent management suite, we’re improving employee visibility into the skills, efforts, and responsibilities required in their specific job,” said Sherwin Kelly, director of product development at TalentGuard. “We also recognize the challenges facing talent leaders in comparing job roles. We’ve added efficiencies to make it easier for them to gather objective data that is both scientific and qualitative with our reporting capabilities.”
Designed and implemented by organizational development experts, enhancements will:
- Improve overall user experience
- Increase skill gap reporting capabilities
- Increase quality of hire
“With states like Massachusetts doubling down on gender and pay laws, just checking boxes or saying someone has a skill or competence in a particular area will no longer be enough,” said Linda Ginac, CEO of TalentGuard. “If a man and woman in the same role are not making the same salary, this action will have to be justified. Our existing data modeling framework gives companies a valid, legally defensible way to make the comparison between these two roles.”
TalentGuard is the only solution that goes beyond high-level skill group assessments to indicator leveling across roles. This in-depth approach to skills assessments empowers talent leaders to make bias-free decisions about performance and pay that go beyond compliance requirements.
