About the Book



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 QTNTª (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.

Don't wait for the outside world to notice your value and pay you fairly. Use Rick's QTNT technique to develop yourself into a confident, self-aware individual, armed with a succinct, factual value statement of your contributions." -- "CATHERINE L. CROSSLIN, CEO, Instar Performance A Culture & Leadership Consultancy"
