Lumen Technologies has enlisted the resources of Syndio to help them achieve their pay equity goals. Syndio provides technology and expert guidance that helps companies measure and achieve all facets of workplace equity. Their Workplace Equity Analytics Platform provides visibility to potential pay and other workplace disparities.

In addition, Syndio helps companies embed workplace equity into their core business. This helps to ensure that once achieved, equity will be maintained.

Lumen’s Kate Johnson

Kate Johnson is president and CEO of Lumen.

“We are committed to rebuilding Lumen starting with our people and prioritizing this partnership with Syndio is a strong example of that commitment,” she said.  “Syndio’s platform will play an important role in advancing pay equity at Lumen, and importantly, it will ensure we can measure it. Deepening our understanding of equity issues in our workplace helps us strengthen our culture of trust and transparency among our employees, our most valuable assets.”

Lauded and Applauded

Lumen is well-known for its dedication to creating an inclusive workplace. In addition to hiring Johnson as the company’s first female CEO in 2022, the company garnered a plethora of awards.

Lumen was named to Newsweek’s list of America’s Most Responsible Companies 2022 and nonprofit JUST Capital’s 2022 Rankings of America’s Most JUST Companies.  Lumen was also recognized by Forbes as  One of America’s Best Employers for Diversity 2022.

For fourth consecutive year, Lumen earned a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and earned a spot on the list of best places to work for LGBTQ+ equality.  For the seventh consecutive year, Lumen was included on Minority Engineer Magazine’s Top 50 Employers List. They ranked #20 on that list and #12 on the 31st Annual Top 50 Employers in CAREERS & the disABLED magazine list — their fifth consecutive year.
