Diversity & Compensation
Joe Van Gogh, Inc., hires and employs individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, disability, and any other protected characteristic, as established by law. Employment is strictly based upon an individual’s capabilities and qualifications. This Equal Employment Opportunity policy applies to all procedures relating to recruitment and hiring, compensation, benefits, termination and all other terms and conditions of employment.
At Joe Van Gogh, we follow a policy of not engaging in negotiations for compensation or benefits packages. This approach is rooted in research that demonstrates how negotiations can lead to unjustifiable pay discrepancies. These disparities are often not based on differences in skills or abilities but rather on individuals’ negotiation prowess. In light of this, we prefer to provide an initial offer that we consider to be equitable for the position, rather than starting with a lower offer and expecting negotiation.
To ensure fairness, we conduct an annual analysis of compensation for every role within the company. This analysis takes into account various factors such as local living wage data, industry benchmarks, company size, experience, and skill levels. By doing so, we strive to ensure that our wage offerings align with the regional market and provide a fair remuneration for our employees.
