Summary

This publication presents six primary tools employers can use to narrow or eliminate pay gaps in their workplaces. After each tool is a discussion of the problem and examples of "best practices" by employers that have won the Department of Labor's Opportunity 2000 and EVE (Exemplary Voluntary Efforts) awards. The report is divided into six tools: "Tool #1: Evaluate Your Compensation System--Are there wage gaps between women and men at your company that cannot be explained by legitimate nondiscriminatory factors?" Examples of best practices are Blue Cross Blue Shield of Delaware, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), and Eli Lilly and Company (Lilly); "Tool #2: Establish Effective Recruitment, Hiring, and Promotion Practices--How effective are you at recruiting, hiring, and promoting qualified women and minorities?" Examples of best practices are Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc., PNNL, and Lilly; "Tool #3: Address Diversity--Do you address diversity?" An example of best practice is Payne & Dolan, Inc; "Tool #4: Implement Mentoring Programs--Do you have a formal mentoring program?" An example of best practice is Lilly, "Tool #5: Have a System To Ensure Accountability--What tools do you have in place to monitor progress and hold people accountable for equal opportunity and equal pay in your workplace?" Do senior executives support their use? An example of best practice is Lilly; Tool #6 suggests four Web sites that offer information and technical assistance. (YLB)
