Some of our core projects include:

  • Pay equity to help clients ensure pay is equitable for all employees regardless of their demographic background

  • External labor market analyses to help companies better understand the labor markets in which they operate or explore where to open a new location

  • Internal labor market analyses to identify drivers of key workforce outcomes, such as retention, engagement, promotion, and performance, and interventions an organization can undertake to influence these outcomes

  • Strategic workforce planning to enable organizations to balance current and projected demand for talent against current and projected supply

  • Business impact modeling to identify the workforce characteristics and management practices that are the strongest drivers of business outcomes such as productivity, profitability, growth, quality, and customer retention

  • Advanced analytical and problem-solving skills

  • Experience working with and manipulating large databases
