Total Compensation Statements

Total Compensation Statements provide your employees with a full picture of the costs associated with their employment. Most employers use these statements as a way to educate their employees about how the company is investing in them.

Why is Creating a Total Compensation Statement a Benefit to Employers?

  • Demonstrates to the employees the employer/employee portions of total benefit costs.
  • Educates your employees about the total costs of medical, dental, vision, etc. insurance coverage.
  • Highlights benefits that may be under-utilized or not apparent to your employees.
  • Allow employees and prospective employees to compare their total compensation “apples to apples” with other offers, rather than focusing solely on the base salary.
