The GEM Alpha Gains Momentum!

Chances are you've probably been receiving emails about a new product we're alpha testing called the Good Employer Matrix (GEM). The GEM is a web based assessment that measures wages, benefits, culture, scheduling mobility, and professional development.

If you've already taken the GEM, thank you! If you haven't, take it today – we need your feedback!

Here's what we've learned thus far about the companies that have completed the GEM:

  • 41% of women, POC, and LGBTQ in management roles
  • 74% of employees live local (within 20 mi of their job)
  • 83% of companies pay above minimum wage
  • 74% of companies have promoted employees within the last year
