Principles of Employee Compensation

A four hour program to gain an understanding of the components of an effective compensation system. Intended to attract, retain and reward employees, compensation is as much an art as a science. Practitioners need a clear understanding of the logic behind various strategies to administer compensation plans and explain decisions. This course is designed for an HR generalist or representative who has little or no background in compensation and wants a broad overview of compensation practices and trends.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss elements of a total reward program and elements of compensation
  • Gain an understanding of the U.S. laws and regulations impacting compensation programs
  • Learn about sequential processes of job analysis, job documentation and job evaluation
  • Address the issue of external competitiveness - job pricing and the use of labor market data to determine competitive position
  • Discuss pay determination systems and learn alternatives commonly used in companies

Who Should Attend:

Managers and supervisors; human resource, financial and payroll personnel; small business owners; and members of job evaluation or compensation committees
