  Compensation Strategies to Recruit and Retain the Best Talent

This presentation will identify the nuts and bolts along with important strategies necessary for a competitive total rewards program in today’s tough environment.  The presentation will address the different types of pay such as base, incentive, differentials, benefits, and other rewards.  Also, we will discuss identifying your competitive market for different portions of your employee population and developing a compensation philosophy for your organization.  Would you recruit for an accountant the same market you do an environmental services aide?  Understanding how these key elements work together in an additive nature to combine and create a total rewards program that is understood by management and staff, legal, fair, and competitive.   Finally, communication is key.  Your organization can have the most competitive program in the market, but if the employees do not understand it, you are not getting the intended return on the investment.  The goal is for compensation and benefits to become a neutral employee relations topic. 


Key Learning Objectives:

·       Understand the exchange relationship between the employer and employee regarding total rewards.

·       Understand the elements total rewards

·       Learn about national trends and what best in class employers are doing for total compensation from the 2018 Gallagher National Benchmarking Survey.

·       Gain strategies around compensation planning and philosophy

·       Identifying your competitive market(s)

·       Communication strategies for compensation and benefits programs


Three core areas that this presentation addresses:

·       Compensation strategies and planning

·       Developing a compensation philosophy
