“An infectiously evenhanded, useful approach to assessing fairer pay.” — Kirkus

"How much are you worth? Rick Gillis brings science to the art of getting paid fairly at work." — Adrian Gostick & Chester Elton, Best Selling Authors | The Carrot Principle, Leading With Gratitude & Anxiety At Work

Leveling the Paying Field offers anyone who takes home a paycheck, seeking a new job opportunity, or carving out their own career path the opportunity to take pay parity into their own hands. Several books exist on the topic of fair pay, but none offers an individual approach to achieving fair pay like Leveling the Paying Field. 

In his latest book, author Rick Gillis has created a rich new metric for measuring the value of the work you produce he calls the QTNT® (pronounced: ‘quotient’). Your QTNT score can then be used to reasonably and realistically challenge your current rate of pay. Not only can equal pay for equal work ultimately be realized, but even better, proper pay for outstanding performance becomes the new normal.

“In Leveling the Paying Field Rick Gillis has brought his lifetime of career management experience to solving one of the hardest aspects of compensation and negotiation: quantifying performance and
value fairly and accurately, regardless of role or gender... His ‘quotient’ will work for everyone…” — Lisa Gates, Negotiation & Career Story Coach | StoryHappensHere.com
