Evaluate and design compensation plans to attract and retain the best talent.

Compensation plans impact an organization's recruitment and retention strategies. In fact, how well an organization designs new compensation plans and assesses current plans, shapes how a present and possibly future employee views the organization. In this course, participants will examine the role of compensation in their organization's strategic human resources plan. They will review the key elements and practices of building a compensation plan that meets organizational objectives.

Participants will also consider how their organization can remain competitive, assessing whether their organization needs to lead, lag, or meet market average in terms of its compensation strategy.
