Pay Inequities
By: Rick Boxx
August 19, 2015

Decades ago, Max Depree, the former CEO of Herman Miller, walked in on a conversation his employees were having about the size of Depree’s pay. They challenged him about the huge disparity between his compensation and the average worker at Herman Miller.

From that discussion, Max established a policy that his CEO compensation couldn’t exceed 20 times the average wage of a factory line worker! Each situation warrants a different conclusion, but at least Depree addressed the inequities.

James 5:4 teaches, “Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.”

God listens to those who have been treated unfairly. Do you have any compensation inequities in your organization that need addressed?
