Morgan Stanley at Work and Pave, a leading provider of real-time compensation benchmarking and planning solutions, today announced the launch of an integration with the Shareworks application programming interface (API) which will allow Morgan Stanley at Work Private Markets clients to seamlessly access real-time compensation benchmarking and planning solutions.

The announcement comes on the heels of several initiatives by Morgan Stanley at Work to bring relevant and important data seamlessly to clients.

"Now more than ever, clients are seeking a one stop shop for accurate and timely information to drive data-led employee decisions. Within the lens of our focus on arming clients with everything they need in one place, this integration brings an added breadth of data for clients on the Shareworks platform.”

Integrated clients will be able to leverage Morgan Stanley at Work's equity information to benchmark equity grants against peers, plan equity refresh grants, and communicate equity with employees. Together, clients can build competitive equity packages that help meet employee needs and align with company financial goals.
