Preparing for more effective compensation planning with Terri Joosten, who has 23 years in HR Technology and Denise Bilsland, CHRE with over 15 years as a Compensation Consultant.

In this webcast, they address compensation planning at a high level taking it from a strategic perspective then breaking it down a more tactical or pragmatic perspective.

They look at the key components of a compensation strategy

They tie your compensation strategy with your total rewards program and discuss key stakeholders and their interest in the compensation plan.

And they teach you that once you understand a bit more about your organization you’ll learn which jobs are strategic, what the focus in terms of the long term retention is, and they’ll walk you through designing a compensation plan to support it.

These days, technology can enable us to administer compensation plans much more effectively. It can eliminate the errors and risk factors associated with using spreadsheets.

It can also support transparency and communication between managers and employees. Giving managers the tools they need to support the pay philosophy.
