2-days In-person Seminar On "How To Build A Formal Compensation Program And Solving Compensation Program Problems" At Orlando



Some companies believe that a "Compensation Program" is simply paying employees "a fair day`s wage for a fair day`s work." But knowledgeable Human Resource professionals and practitioners know that there are many advantages to building what is known as a "formal" (i.e. organized, structured, comprehensive) Compensation program. This is a multi-phase process that builds equity (i.e. "fairness") into the program, and that simplifies decision making and administration. But beyond these important advantages, a well-designed Compensation program will provide a competitive advantage when compared to those companies whose Compensation programs are in disarray, and that don't facilitate the attraction, retention and motivation of employees. In this seminar, presented by David J. Wudyka, SPHR, MBA, David will describe the steps and methods for building a formal Compensation program.

Why should you attend?

You should attend this Seminar if you are responsible for building or re-designing your company's Compensation program. Mr. Wudyka will describe each of six steps for building a formal Compensation program in-depth. You will learn about your options for various design elements that will be compatible with your company's pay philosophy. If employee morale is low, you will benefit by learning strategies that can help to strengthen equity (i.e. fairness) and simplify pay program decisions and administration. When you finish this Seminar, you will have the knowledge that you need to embark upon the design process in your company.
