Comp leaders say it best

With Pave, we can offer transparency for managers in terms of how they should reward employees and also how they can responsibly allocate their budget. It’s a huge benefit to have managers aligned and bought into the comp philosophy and how it’s executed so they can have better conversations with their employees.

Prior to Pave, we did not have established compensation bands. Pave was efficient and effective in helping us to identify the correct benchmarks to use to build our compensation bands. The Pave team was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable throughout the process, which saved us a ton of time and set us up perfectly for our future merit cycle
