What is pay justice and pay equity? And why do they matter? Sally Loftis has dedicated her career to helping organizations through the minefield of this topic and helps them overcome the growing distrust of institutions through systemic work. She is the founder and Managing Director of Loftis Partners in North Carolina and comes to us with a background in HR and consulting. Now she specializes in the area of pay justice and is a real expert in her space.
In our conversation today, Sally discusses what exactly pay justice and pay equity are and gives insight on how to manage this issue, especially in the United States. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach and it is a challenge. But the work Sally does not only helps organizations understand pay justice and pay equity but also helps them systemically change their approach to it altogether.
