Interested in learning how to navigate the art and science of compensation? Compensation data can be very helpful in providing an external trend, but it also raises employees’ expectations, and requires both analysis and strategy. This course will combine and cover the essential elements of compensation analysis!

Part I - Compensation Foundations

This session will provide an overview of the fundamentals of compensation analysis. What is it? Why do we do it? What is a compensation philosophy and how do I develop one? Learn about the “whole job evaluation” methodology and approaches to compensation studies and identifying your labor market, choosing benchmark classifications.

Part II - Auditing & Data Analysis

This session will cover collecting the market data, verifying the appropriateness of identified comparable classifications, and auditing matches to identify the accuracy of the salary data. In addition to the implementation of developing salary recommendations, and implementation strategies.

The zoom link will be provided to registered attendees.
