The Thoughtful Co. supports women in negotiating their compensation, and advises employers on improving
gender equity in the workplace.
We advise women in compensation and contract negotiations. We are compensation experts. All services are led by the former leader of Executive Compensation at Lululemon. Using our team's deep expertise in compensation, we empower women to feel confident in asking for the compensation they deserve. Compensation includes salary, stock options, RSUs, bonuses, benefits, vacation, severance, RRSP/401Ks, non-competes, allowances, parental leave and more. We help our clients achieve a +25% higher compensation package than their current on average, and have worked with women across Canada, the US and the UK.
We provide strategic advice and guidance on retention, policy, and governance, all informed by research and data. As a trusted consultancy, we offer comprehensive services designed to help companies create an inclusive environment that empowers women to thrive throughout their careers. With a thoughtful and thorough approach, our experienced consultants work closely with your organization to implement practices that retain and engage women over the long term. We assist in setting up governance structures that support these practices, creating a foundation for sustained progress.
Note: "women" includes anyone who identifies as a woman.
