Towards a Fairer Future: Compete’s Data-Driven Approach to Pay Equality

Talking about the pay gap can sometimes feel like we’re going around in circles. It’s a serious issue, popping up in news headlines, company boardrooms, and even casual conversations over coffee. But even with this, often heavy, discourse, there are tangible strides being made toward addressing and, ideally, closing this gap.

Enter Amit Rapaport, whose story and solution bring a fresh perspective to this old problem. Amit co-founded Compete out of a personal and professional need for better transparency and fairness in pay. Her experience in recruitment and compensation revealed a gap in real-time, accurate data to inform fair pay decisions. It’s a story many of us can relate to, either as employees wondering about our worth or employers striving to ensure fairness.

The conversation around pay equity is complex, filled with statistics, policies, and sometimes, unfortunately, just lip service. But there’s a growing collection of tools and platforms genuinely designed to make a difference. Compete, with its roots in real experience and a focus on actionable data, represents a piece of the puzzle in addressing pay disparities.

It’s refreshing to see solutions like Compete emerge, focused on making a tangible difference. In the midst of ongoing debates and discussions on the pay gap, it’s practical, data-driven approaches like this that can lead us toward a fairer future. So, as we continue to push for equality, let’s also support and utilise the tools that are making strides in the right direction.
