The Thoughtful Co. is about doing things really well, the first time. We are a consultancy focused on advancing equity for women in the workplace. We do things thoughtfully and thoroughly, from the outset, every time.
We advise women in compensation and contract negotiations, from junior roles to senior executives. Using our team's deep expertise in compensation, we empower women to feel confident in asking for the compensation they deserve. Compensation includes annual salary, stock options, restricted share units, bonus incentives, benefits, vacation, severance, RRSP/401Ks/ESPPs, non-competes, allowances, parental leave and more.
We advise companies on retention, policy and governance, informed by research. We help employers implement practices that retain and engage women over the long-term, and set up governance structures to support these practices. Our goal is to create structures that allow women to thrive over their full career.
Note: "women" includes anyone who identifies as a woman.
