Compensation and Benefits Strategy Masterclass

Compensation and benefits programmes are a core element in every organisation’s people programme. Not only the most visible elements of an employee’s remuneration package, compensation and benefits are of interest to investors as well as regulators, governments and even customers.Balancing an organisation’s compensation and benefits package is critical in order to meet its short-term and long-term goals, create a consistent message and meet the concerns (and demands) of its investors. If organisations do not often take a step back and review the strategic goals of their compensation and benefits programmes, they run the very real risk of having schemes that reward unacceptable behaviour and do not motivate, retain or develop targeted employees.

Turning 'Theory' into 'Practice'?

This workshop is not a “how to” on building compensation and benefits plans but a Masterclass in defining the role of total compensation in achieving an organisation’s strategy. This highly interactive workshop draws upon the latest research, the facilitator’s personal experiences in senior Comp & Benefits and Line HR roles and the delegate’s own experiences. The workshop will equip attendees with thea) knowledge, tools and techniques toa. define the purpose of compensation in their organisationb. articulate the role and value of the Compensation and Benefits functionc. measure the success (or failure) of those programmesd. effectively communicate compensation and benefits as a part of a broader people strategye. focus on a total compensation approach with particular emphasis on non-cash rewardsb) personal skills and knowledge to improve their own HR proficiency.Delegates will be encouraged to share personal experiences and learn from each others successes.Participants will be encouraged and supported to build a personal development plan for future success.
