First the analysis, then the certification. Because at the beginning of every compensation strategy is the analysis - always. But what needs to be considered? Which key figures and criteria are decisive on the way to fair pay? What is the best software? Are there hidden pitfalls?
We would be happy to provide individual advice and support to any company that wants to pay fairly - but unfortunately, we can't be everywhere at once! After all, our goal is fair pay for all employees, in every company, worldwide. That's why we focus on certification and are constantly developing the process to optimize it in line with the latest economic, scientific, and political developments. After all, there are many pay certifications, but our claim is: If you're going to certify, then certify properly.
To be able to certify as many companies as possible, we work with a number of analysis partners, currently from Germany and Iceland. They all have a lot of analysis experience and testing routine and know very well which criteria are decisive for the Universal Fair Pay Check. In order to prepare for certification in the best possible way, it is advisable for many companies to work with external compensation professionals.
