  • Check internal equity – by comparing sub-groups of employees to analyze pay by function, location or branch, and
  • Model ‘What-If’ Scenarios – and analyze the impact of different reward strategies, by individual function, level and/or location, or across the whole organization.

The offering from management consultancy Hay Group and HR software specialists, Cezanne Software, will combine Hay Group’s PayNet databases and reports with the pay modeling capabilities of Cezanne’s Salary Analysis software tool, the announcement said. The new tool will be made available to PayNet users by January 2007.
