Are You Paid What You’re Worth?

By: Polina Hanin

“Am I paid what I’m worth?” A quick question that hangs in the air uncomfortably as you try to unpack the impact of the word “worth.” And while worth may be hard to quantify, payment certainly isn’t. You know exactly what your base, bonus and equity is in money terms. OK, maybe not equity.

Aequitas Partners has always been a human capital company with equity at its heart. To aid in the search for further transparency and insight, last year we launched a resource center, including the industry’s first executive compensation study. And today, we’re announcing the long-awaited sequel – the 2nd Annual Digital Health Executive Compensation Study.

If 2020 was all about new normals, 2021 is about understanding where the trends are headed. We were really proud of what the first study accomplished. It helped dozens of companies become competitive in their compensation structures. It aided thousands of executives in understanding whether their packages were at / below / above market for their function, seniority and company stage. And we even have a few reports of executives getting raises after using the findings in salary negotiations.

So here is where you come in. If you’re a CEO take it and then share this survey with your team. If you’re an executive take it and then share it with your peers to help them gain an understanding of their worth. If you’re an investor, share this survey with your portfolio companies to learn if your portfolio is competitive in the market.
