Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the fundamentals of compensation planning from job benchmarking, pay surveys, incentive pay, and more for successful results.



HR professionals need to know the fundamentals of compensation planning if they are to succeed at recruiting and retaining talent. And, while most HR professionals aren’t full-fledged compensation experts, the good news is that they can learn key concepts, terms, and best practices so they can effectively use salary surveys, identify comparable positions by dissecting job duties, and more.

But, doing so, comes with many questions, such as:

  • What’s the difference between “mean” and “median” and what do “percentiles” represent?
  • Where should I start to establish the “building blocks” of the company’s compensation program?
  • What concepts and terminology are essential to know (and why)?
  • How competitive does our company need to be, based on our industry and location?
  • How do benefits and perquisites fit into our total compensation scheme?
  • What part will incentives play, if any?
  • Will there be a different approach for organizational levels?
  • What is the nature of “pay increases”? What will they be based on?


The answers will depend largely on your budget, industry, and location. But, by learning the fundamentals, you’ll be in a good position to ensure that your pay program is fair and competitive, which is essential for recruiting and retaining talent.

Use this in-depth on-demand webinar on how to analyze your compensation program, effectively use salary surveys and other compensation tools, and make your organization competitive and attractive to talent.
