STEP 1: LEAPS Assessment

Our comprehensive evaluation answers the question: How do I measure workplace equity at my company?

Using academically rigorous tools, we combine your company-level stats with employee feedback in 3 key metrics: Workplace Environment, Advancement & Compensation, Policies & Benefits. We also house your data in an actionable format on a secure, mobile-friendly digital platform. This means you can report to leadership, employees, and other stakeholders with just a touch.
