KNR Makes Pledge to #StandForEqualPay

May 03, 2017 Giving    Press Release

Posted by: Kisling, Nestico & Redick, LLC

At Kisling, Nestico & Redick we take our commitment to pursuing justice very seriously. Whether it is in the courtroom on behalf of our clients or fostering a work environment where everyone is included and respected regardless of age, race, gender, or religion, we believe diversity and unique perspectives are a key to long-term success.

A recent study by Glassdoor found that based on more than 505,000 full-time U.S. salaries, women make an average of 24.1 percent less in base pay than men, which equates to 76 cents per dollar. This does vary depending on job title, employer, and location, but it is clear that a lot of work needs to be done on the part of the employers themselves. That’s why KNR is proud to take part in Glassdoor’s initiative, partnering with numerous other companies across all types of industries, to support workplace fairness and promote equal pay for equal work.

As we strive to make fairness, diversity, and inclusion fundamental employment values at KNR, we are also constantly looking for new ways to involve, energize, and advance the principals of gender equality throughout the legal community. When experience, talent, and excellence are measured equally and a clear path for success is provided for men and women alike, we see the best and brightest rise to leadership roles without the limitations of biases and outdated values.

Additionally, our investment in equality should instill in our clients a lasting degree of trust as they know their case is being handled by a dedicated legal professional who is valued within our company. As our firm grows, our pledge to ensure equal pay for equal work across our organization will as well. We will continue to collect data and examine the factors that influence pay and advancement opportunities to educate and ultimately create a system that rewards everyone fairly and based on KNR’s collective success.

Identifying shortcomings is always the first step to correcting a problem and the second is undoubtedly recognizing the contributions and achievements of the often-undervalued female employees. The Ohio personal injury attorneys at Kisling, Nestico & Redick are pleased to be at the forefront of finding solutions in the workplace. We commend Glassdoor and the other companies who have made the commitment to close the gender gap and are excited to make meaningful strides in this important and overdue direction.
