This is a basic level course intended for those new to compensation.

External competitiveness is a prime objective for most organizations, but the approach taken to measure competitiveness may differ from one organization to another. In fact, competitive objectives may change within the same organization over time, especially when financial performance fluctuates.

The goal of "market pricing" is to collect and analyze data that will meet the organizational objective of identifying external competitiveness. Market pricing is not an exact science, but a sound and practical approach using summary statistics from published surveys that can add validity to the market pricing process.

This webinar will discuss practical guidelines that may be used for identifying, selecting, analyzing, and using market data to complete essential tasks in determining external competitiveness and establishing a competitive market-based pay program. The importance of communicating the compensation program effectively will also be discussed and practical tips will be provided to support you in delivering a transparent message to your employees so that they may understand and, ultimately, buy into the program.

This webinar can be taken alone or as part of a series that should be taken in this order: Compensation Basics: Job Analysis, Descriptions & Evaluations, Analyzing and Using Salary Survey Data, Designing Pay Structures, Essentials of Base, Performance, and Supplemental Pay Programs.
