Quorum Is Working to Advance Pay Equity: What Does That Mean For You? 

In an effort to continue to build a diverse and inclusive work environment that advances pay equity, Quorum has implemented a "No Negotiation" policy for base salary for new hires for roles that are currently staffed by three or more team members. This means that candidates for the Customer Support Specialist role cannot negotiate Quorum's base salary offer. 

Here's our promise to you: 

  • We will not ask you what you are currently earning. 
  • We will consider years of relevant experience, relevant professional certifications/education, and performance expectations in setting what we believe is a competitive, fair base salary offer. 
  • We will be transparent about our compensation structure (see above) so that all candidates have equal access to compensation information and can make an informed decision about whether or not Quorum is the right workplace for them.

If you are interested in learning more about how negotiation impacts pay equity and/or why other start-ups have decided to implement a "No Negotiation" policy of some type, here are a few resources: Project Include, AAUW, Ministry for Women, Magoosh. 

Note: Quorum does not endorse or verify any of the information provided in the resources on the impact of negotiation on pay equity. We provide these resources simply to increase awareness of a topic we believe is important for both employers and candidates to consider.
