Top California Employers Know It’s More Than Just Equal Pay

effective-workplace-model-icons-FINAL-284x269The Golden State now has one of the toughest equal pay laws in the country, a measure that’s seen as leveling the playing field for women.

But top employers realize it’s more than just a paycheck that will help fill the gender gap in the workplace, whether it’s career advancement or tenure. It’s about effective and flexible work that drives work success and engagement for women and men in today’s high-paced, global economy.
