What could more and better pay mean for doing what you do?
Coming this summer, Leveling the Paying Field offers every person
who works a simple to implement method to earn the proper pay
for your best work.

“There are several reasons why pay disparity issues happen in the US but one that continues to surface, especially for women, is our unwillingness to advocate for ourselves. While much is written in the areas of assertiveness and communication styles what has been missing from this conversation are the metrics to advocate for oneself. Career management and job search expert, Rick Gillis, now offers a groundbreaking, potentially life-changing concept that provides you with a methodology to define your worth in the language of business: how to measure your financial benefit to the organization.”
Alana M. Hill, from the Foreword to Leveling the Paying Field

Equal Pay or the Proper Pay?

 

In Leveling the Paying Field, Rick Gillis introduces the Quotient (QTNT), a deceptively simple, yet amazingly rich way of measuring a person’s contributions and accomplishments.
RANDALL HANSEN, Ph.D. Empowering Educator & Marketer

 

While equal pay for equal work is the law of the land (at least in the US), Rick operates from the premise that the proper pay for the best (measurable) performance is the standard from which pay should be determined. This concept puts the opportunity for identifying and sharing personal best contributions in the hands of the workforce–something that has never been done before but is actually very simple to accomplish. After all, who knows better what you do–especially those things you do that are above and beyond the call of your job description. This is the game changing idea behind the Quotient. And the best part? This is not difficult. In fact, the simplicity is astounding.
