How, in the wake of COVID-19, Vista used Payscale MarketPay with geo differentials to develop a new employee location-based pay strategy that would support a remote-first workplace and “hire from anywhere”.

Payscale has been a phenomenal partner during the COVID-19 pandemic. After surveying team members on their preferences, we opted to transition to a permanently remote first workforce and were able to model costs and conduct analysis on pay strategies to develop a global approach to compensation with geographical differentials that would be fair and equitable for all team members. Payscale also provided services to help us deliver manager training and communicate our compensation strategy and rationale as part of a pay transparency initiative.”
