Knowing whether you are compensating employees fairly and competitively is critical to creating an equitable workplace where people want to stay and give their best effort. Supervisors and managers need a baseline understanding of compensation methodology and tools for communicating with their employees, especially when pay is linked to performance.

In this session, Suzi Wear will discuss how employers can develop their compensation strategy and pay structure, so employees can feel confident that their knowledge, skills and performance are valued and rewarded.

In this webinar, attendees will:

• Review key terminology relating to compensation;
• Review methodology for benchmarking jobs to ensure market competitiveness and alignment with your strategy; • Gain tools for reviewing and communicating compensation with your employees; and
• Learn how to go about developing a compensation philosophy and strategy.
