As often said, “Pay is a powerful communicator of values and direction.”  Having a well-planned and designed rewards system does more than the usual goal of attract-retain-motivate.  It should also be aligned or based on an HR strategy that is linked with a business blueprint.

Pay principles may remain the same for all employee groups, but design must recognize differences in each group.  The workshop is designed to provide principles in compensation planning and design for the various employee groups in an organization. This workshop offers insights on how to design rewards programs for Executives, Exempts, and Non-exempts.
