Compensation & Benefits Philosophy & Strategy Development
We lead management through a process that identifies the major issues in a strategy statement and helps them work through those issues to arrive at a definitive strategy.
Domestic Compensation Plans
Domestically, we work with your compensation function and management team to determine the appropriate types of compensation plans that will support your business strategy. Whether you need to focus on base pay, merit plans, skill-based pay plans, incentive plans, broad banding or other reward-based programs, we can provide the support and expertise needed to create result-based solutions.
If you have employees outside the United States, you know they are paid differently than those who are U.S. based. If those employees are local to the foreign operation or are third country nationals, they still need different pay plans. We provide the necessary assistance to make rational and business sense out of these differences.
Internationally, we will assist you in discerning the complex and often confusing foreign compensation plan options. We offer solutions for items such as foreign service, mobility and hardship premiums, completion bonus, tax equalization, tax protection, housing, schooling, transportation and different pay plans. We can also assist you in developing compensation programs for your local national employees.
"Thank you so much for the electronic copy of the final report. I read through the report Monday night and have to tell you that I for one am extremely pleased with all that you and Jim have done. An old belief in higher education in WV is that consultants are only hired when an administrator wants to validate his or her wishes. The two of you have proven that belief to be wrong and your work has given many of us the hope that we've waited very long for. Having gone through the WorldatWork training and worked in the real world prior to coming to higher education, I know positively that your recommendations are based on best practices.
I hope that the opportunity will be available for us to work with the two of you on future projects. The type of cultural change that we need in higher ed will not take place overnight and there are many other HR related issues that we've sure to need the advice of outside consultants on. It has been a pleasure working with you and Jim."
