Achieving Proper Pay for Outstanding Performance

For those individuals waiting for the government or their organization to achieve pay parity, Rick Gillis, author of Leveling the Paying Field, offers workers the opportunity to take the issue into their own hands. After more than twenty years of job search support and career advising, Rick has now created the QTNT® (pronounced: Quotient) Personal Value Calculation process to teach workers (as well as their employers!) how to identify and assign value to individual job performance and personal accomplishment in an all-new way. Rick, the creator of this very simple, easy to use, performance metric shares with you how the QTNT truly does level the ‘paying’ field. The result is that not only will equal pay for equal work be realized, but even better, proper pay for outstanding performance becomes the new normal. Leveling the Paying Field is the sum of Rick Gillis’ varied and colorful career in sales, as a manager, author, speaker, award-winning media host, and now, as an indisputable thought leader.
