Lattice Compensation Benchmarking Powered by Mercer offers companies of all sizes the opportunity to tap into global, curated data based on their specific parameters, which include company size, industry, geographical location, and specific job titles, to make informed and equitable pay decisions. Mercer’s data is integrated directly into the Lattice Compensation product, giving teams everything they need to develop and execute smarter pay policy all in one place. Mercer benchmarking data is included at no additional charge for current Lattice Compensation customers.

A convergence of factors – including a shift in the labor market, increasingly distributed workforces, rising inflation, and legislative changes – are driving a significant shift in expectations around compensation transparency from employees: Lattice research found that 65% of employees want more transparency from their companies about pay practices, and over half said that companies should disclose how much everyone at an organization is paid. To stay competitive while navigating an uncertain economic environment, companies will need to execute dynamic compensation strategies that enable them to be flexible and reward top performers, while also including checks, guidance, and benchmarking that ensure compensation practices are equitable, clear, and data-driven.
