New to the Ravio product: salary bands that are less painful and more powerful

Managing salary bands and compensation structures is a complex and important task within any organisation – especially leading up to a compensation review cycle. 

In a perfect world, everyone is paid fairly relative to the market for their job position, job level, and location.

But… that means a lot of salary bands – and if you are using several spreadsheets to manage these bands, that comes with challenges:

  • Visualising salary bands is tedious (even if you’re an Excel whiz)
  • Making changes to salary bands to fix any issues with band structure, or to remedy out-of-date market rates or pay equity issues
  • Sharing and communicating about salary bands with colleagues and employees can be overwhelming if everything is in a mammoth spreadsheet.

Introducing: beautiful, effective, fair, and easy-to-use salary bands – built from scratch or rescued from spreadsheets

Compensation bands form the foundation of any organisation's compensation framework, playing a pivotal role in ensuring fairness and clarity in compensation decisions throughout the company. Nevertheless, in the absence of effective tools to manage bands, they can quickly become obsolete, leaving managers and recruiters to make compensation decisions based on guesswork.

Ravio’s new salary bands tool makes it easy to view, analyse, refresh, and share salary bands that are continuously calibrated against Europe’s most reliable real-time talent market data.

Clearly visualise salary bands, without the headaches

Confidently view and compare all of your salary bands in one beautifully simple interface. Banish tedious time spent scraping together sample-based benchmarks from multiple sources, then verifying, and adjusting salary bands across several spreadsheets shared through layers of stakeholders.

Protect your best talent

Ravio makes it easy to evaluate your bands across your company. Illuminate previously invisible gaps in pay equity and market competitiveness – backed by unprecedented visibility into real market data. Know exactly how your salary band structure is performing and immediately identify issues with internal pay equity, market competitiveness, or band definition – as well as how much it will cost to correct them.

Keep employees happy and competitively compensated by diving into each band to see how employees are distributed around the band, including by gender, and monitor if you are falling behind the market in real-time.

Lead a fair and easy comp review cycle

When it comes to refreshing your bands, delivering your people objectives within your budget constraints shouldn't feel painful. Ravio wants to make it easy to let a fair comp philosophy lead the process. That’s why Ravio’s salary bands make it simple for you to take action and improve your band structure, with full confidence knowing that the final outcome will be fair and equitable.

It’s also easy to update your band ranges to reflect current market benchmarks, and split out high paying job positions into a separate band.
