LEVELING THE PAYING FIELD
What could more and better pay mean for doing what you do?
Leveling the Paying Field offers every person who works a simple-to-implement method to earn the best 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.”
Book Foreword by Alana Hill
ABOUT THE BOOK
When you think about it, it’s not actually all that reasonable to expect the government to be able to implement ‘equal pay for equal work’ when they don’t know you, what you do, or who you work with.
I prefer the idea, and have written about the concept that it is you, who best knows what you do and how well you do it; that it should be you who shares your narrative objectively and presents your value to your employer. When does this happen? At your annual performance review OR anytime you find an opportunity to share your accomplishments with your immediate supervisor–or his supervisor–or even the VP you run into in the elevator!
There is no trick to knowing how to express or value your work even if you are not comfortable doing so. Leveling the Paying Field provides 14 Q-Studies–real-world, step-by-step examples of others just like you who have worked the process.
What others are saying
In Leveling the Paying Field author Rick Gillis has brought his lifetime of career management experience to solving one of the hardest aspects of compensation and negotiation: quantifying performance and value fairly and accurately, regardless of role or gender. Gillis provides a simple, repeatable formula as well as many examples that illustrate that quantifying value is not just for those whose work directly impacts revenue. His “quotient” will work for everyone, from secretaries to project managers to executives. A must for HR and hiring managers.

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.
