Leveling the Paying Field: A Groundbreaking Approach to Achieving Fair Pay
by Rick Gillis
“How much are you worth? Rick Gillis brings science to the art of getting paid fairly at work.” — Adrian Gostick & Chester Elton, Best Selling Authors | The Carrot Principle, Leading With Gratitude & Anxiety At Work
“An infectiously evenhanded, useful approach to assessing fairer pay.” — Kirkus
Leveling the Paying Field offers anyone who takes home a paycheck, seeking a new job opportunity, or carving out their own career path the opportunity to take pay parity into their own hands. Several books exist on the topic of fair pay, but none offers an individual approach to achieving fair pay like Leveling the Paying Field.
In his latest book, author Rick Gillis has created a rich new metric for measuring the value of the work you produce he calls the QTNT® (pronounced: ‘quotient’). Your QTNT score can then be used to reasonably and realistically challenge your current rate of pay. Not only can equal pay for equal work ultimately be realized, but even better, proper pay for outstanding performance becomes the new normal.

“…in clear and concise steps, he has dispelled any uncertainty of exactly how to level up and get paid what you are worth.” — Alisa Murray, Award winning Columnist and Content Creator | Living the Sweet Life
“In Leveling the Paying Field Rick Gillis has brought his lifetime of career management experience to solving one of the hardest aspects of compensation and negotiation: quantifying performance and
value fairly and accurately, regardless of role or gender… His ‘quotient’ will work for everyone…” — Lisa Gates, Negotiation & Career Story Coach | StoryHappensHere.com
About the Author:
As employee #1, Gillis was the sales guy that became the ‘face of the company’ with the first job board in Houston, TX during the Neolithically-early days of the Internet—ca.1997. The company was initially comprised of three guys working in the dining room of a townhouse while the ‘nationals’ (Monster & CareerBuilder) were striving to break into TX.
Due to being first in the field and Gillis’ sales acumen, he accidentally became the go-to local Internet job search expert which led to invitations to speak around the city (Houston is BIG!), and then Texas (Texas is BIG!), and then across the US (the US is REALLY BIG!) and doing mucho media along the way. Why was media interested in a ‘job search guy’? As the Internet was making its first grand strides in business and in the lives of anyone with an interest, two or three financial recessions crashed the economy of the late 90’s and again into the 2000’s. The US and the world slid into a major recession. Times were tough; people were looking for work, and Rick was in demand.
