About Pave

** What's the problem? **

  • Do you know how your compensation is decided?
  • How do your employers know the market rate?
  • How is your financial success tied to the company's financial success?

** Who are we: **

Pave is a compensation hub that provides real-time benchmarking data and tools to help companies guide their compensation plans. Companies integrate their HR systems and unlock Pave’s real-time data and suite of intelligent software tools. We communicate the company's compensation policy to their employees, and explain how they grow as the company grows.

** What we do: **

At Pave, you will reinvent the world of compensation and help build a more transparent future. Pave allows companies to benchmark compensation to leaders in their industry, analyze internal compensation data. We launched in March of 2020, we already have sizable contracts signed and are actively adding hundreds of new companies to our real-time benchmarking portal.

The world of compensation is messy today.

Most employees don't understand their equity. Promotion cycles are the result of hundreds of messy spreadsheets and outdated compensation surveys. Compensation planning takes hundreds of hours stretching over several months, only to find that employees are still frustrated with their compensation and don’t understand how decisions were made.

At Pave, you will reinvent the world of compensation and help build a more transparent future. Pave allows companies to benchmark compensation to leaders in their industry, analyze internal compensation data, then visually communicate compensation to their employees.
