Citi shows progress on closing pay gaps

Citi Bank | January 21, 2020

Women at Citi are paid on average more than 99% of what men are paid, when job function, level and geography are taken into account. There also is no statistically significant difference in adjusted compensation for US minorities and non-minorities, the company said in a Jan. 15 statement. When those numbers are unadjusted, however, they fall to 73% (up from 71% last year) and 94% (up from 93%), respectively. "Continuing to reduce our raw pay gap requires that we make progress on our representation goals – to increase representation at the Assistant Vice President through Managing Director levels to at least 40% for women globally and 8% for Black employees in the US by the end of 2021 – which we are committed to doing," Sara Wechter, head of human resources, said in the statement.

Human Resources is at a pivotal point in today’s digital economy. We are in an era where the traditional methods of attracting, hiring, and retaining employees with the right skills and competencies are no longer viable. Digital technologies are drastically impacting how employees and job seekers communicate and connect with organizations. They expect automated Human Resources (HR) systems that span staffing and development to performance management. Yet the use of digital processes in Human Resources is lagging on many fronts.

Talent Systems | June 20, 2022

Talent Systems®, the software provider for casting and auditioning that connects talent and their representatives with casting directors, has acquired the eTribez Casting Platform, becoming the leading source worldwide for reality television talent casting. It has also acquired Staff Me Up, the leading production crew professional network with a heavy focus on unscripted productions. With these additions, Talent Systems can provide unscripted shows with all of the tools they need to fully cast and crew their productions. The eTribez Casting Platform, previously led by eTribez CEO Eli Abayan, has been used to cast some of the most recognizable reality shows around the globe, including "Survivor," "Big Brother," "Idol," "Love Island," and "MasterChef." Staff Me Up, led by CEO Jared Tobman, is the top professional network for hiring qualified crew members and creatives and also developed Coded for Inclusion, which works with diversity advocacy organizations and studios, including A+E Networks, Warner Bros. Discovery, Banijay Americas and Amazon Studios, to improve inclusive hiring for historically underrepresented groups. "These acquisitions extend the Talent Systems offerings into the reality TV vertical through both talent casting and crew staffing, We are also excited to continue to grow and support Coded for Inclusion in collaboration with the Staff Me Up team." -Talent Systems Co-CEOs Alex Amin and Rafi Gordon. More than 8 million people have registered with the eTribez Casting Platform. This end-to-end software offers talent a secure front-end registration system, and helps casting directors, production companies, and networks manage the tens of thousands of applications one reality show may receive. Staff Me Up connects 350,000 crew freelancers to exclusive production jobs at more than 3,000 networks, studios and production companies, and its staff of nine will join the Talent Systems team. Later this year, the eTribez Casting Platform will be rebranded under the Talent Systems portfolio while eTribez will continue to independently run its separate Production Management Platform. In the coming months, Staff Me Up will expand its hiring and networking platform, which currently focuses on unscripted crew, into scripted TV and film production. Talent Systems is the parent company of Cast It Systems, Casting Networks®, Spotlight, Casting Frontier, and Modasphere. These platforms, along with the eTribez Casting Platform and Staff Me Up, will continue to operate independently while leveraging each other's technology.
