Rippling automatically gives everyone in your organization—whether they’re the head of HR, a recruiter, or a hiring manager—visibility into the right compensation bands, without ever oversharing.

Automated workflows help you stay ahead of the curve. For example, Rippling can send an alert whenever an employee’s compa-ratio drops due to a location change.

“In the past, I’ve seen 5 headcount on one spreadsheet and 3 on another. Ultimately, nothing would get approved by Finance.”
“FP&A did all this work, and the minute they put their pencil down, somebody would be breaking the rules.”
