Friday Coffee Talk from Planet Fair

Margret and Henrike, the award-winning founders of PayAnalytics and FPI Fair Pay Innovation Lab respectively, converse with their guests about fair pay, equality and better workplaces, all while sharing their own visions of a future where we strive towards "Planet Fair". Margret usually has her cappuccino in Reykjavík or Washington, D.C. while Henrike enjoys her cup either at Berlin Wannsee or on an island in the Atlantic. The episodes are available as a YouTube Videocast or as an Audio Podcast. You can subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.

#22 - What is happening in Iceland? Starring Vidir Ragnarsson

Henrike is joined by a very special guest in a very special place: Vidir Ragnarsson from PayAnalytics - who is visiting Berlin. They discuss the very promising situation in Iceland. Pay gaps are going down and companies are increasingly willing to share their gaps. Vidir Ragnarsson's advice: Start with the data and measuring and go on from there. 

#19 - How can the system in the US be changed?

Margret and Henrike discuss this year's World at Work conference. One of the big topics at the conference is that many companies have great difficulties in finding new employees at all levels of qualification. In the U.S. in particular, companies are therefore looking at how to optimize reward packages and attract skilled workers. Because unlike in most European countries, US-American employees don't automatically get the benefit of health care or paid parental leave. But how could this reality be changed for the better?

#17 - What impact can a German TV editor's lawsuit have? Starring Katinka Brose

Margret is the host of this episode and is joined by Katinka Brose from the Fair Pay Innovation Lab. They discuss a fair pay lawsuit filed by a German media maker who went to court against her employer in 2017. But what impact will this case have on jurisprudence in Germany, where fair pay lawsuits can be counted on two hands so far? To what extent is the type of contract decisive here, and how can gender discrimination in pay be determined?

#15 - Why wouldn’t we want equal pay? (starring Stephen Frost)

Margret and Henrike are joined by the Diversity & Inclusion expert, Stephen Frost, who is not only an old college friend of Margret’s, he was the first officer of inclusion at the London Olympics, founded the impact-led consultancy “Included” in 2012. Over coffee with Margrét and Henrike Stephen describes his remarkable journey: from a lobbyist for Diversity & Inclusion, wondering right from the beginning: Why wouldn't we want equal pay?.

#14 - How not to be afraid of analyzing?
Coffee Talk

#14 - How not to be afraid of analyzing?

Margret and Henrike discuss why companies always become unsure after the first attempt - because they are afraid of the results of the pay analysis. Often, they want to keep their fair pay efforts a secret at the beginning. But what exactly are they insecure about? And how can they be made less concerned about the analysis?

#13 - How to build unbiased models for the future using data of the past?

After a crazy week, Margrét and Henrike talk about a white paper that our amazing data addict from Iceland has been working on with her colleagues. The paper has the fantastic and promising title: There Are No Colourblind Models in a Colorful World. And it deals with such important questions as to how to apply AI successfully to HR, how it can change people’s lives, and how all our data reflect the past and its systematic lack of women. Super fascinating!

#12 - What has working time to do with fair pay?

Margret and Henrike discuss how the diversity in workforces is reflected in working time arrangements and what effects this has on fair pay. Working time and fair pay are interlinked, but how exactly? Especially overtime or shifts and related pay and allowances have an impact on the pay gap. But is this fair? And how does this affect pay gaps?

#11 - How do we benchmark fair pay?
Coffee Talk

#11 - How do we benchmark fair pay?

Margret and Henrike discuss benchmarking. But how is fair pay compared? Does a company benchmark itself to other companies, or should it measure success based on its own standards? How important is salary when "more money" isn't even the most important reason to change a job, but most employees rather care about their careers? What impact has Covid had on salaries?
