Whether you are interested in creating a wage and salary administration plan or considering redesigning your current plan, this webinar will show you how to implement the steps to create a well-structured plan. 

Well-structured wage and salary administration plans in addition to facilitating the retention and recruitment of top-performing employees:

  • Contribute to an Organization’s being able to execute its Business Strategy and maximize its profitability.

  • Provide Leaders control over and maximize the payback from compensation expense – a significant budget item for any Business

  • Enable an Organization to appropriately compensate Employees relative to the market rate for their positions and their job performance.

  • Drive and reward the Employee Behaviours and Performance outcomes the Organization Needs

  • Give Employees confidence and trust in their Leadership Team

  • Cause Employees to focus their attention on and be

  • motivated to perform their jobs to the best of their ability,

  • Thus giving the Organization a significant return on its compensation dollars.


Wise employers know that keeping quality employees requires providing the right compensation package in the form of wages, salaries, bonuses, commission plans, stock options, profit-sharing, etc.

Attracting Talent:

Employees always want to put themselves in the best possible position financially. Through on-line sources employees can determine their worth and the monetary value of positions that might interest them. Therefore, it is critical that companies conduct external equity research to determine what their competitors are paying and how compensation affects employee performance. A competitive package will be required to attract the best candidates to your company. And, of course, hiring the right candidate the first time reduces turnover costs.

Employee Motivation and Engagement:

While recognition and praise motivate employees, competitive compensation must also be in place. Employees desire to work where there is a compensation plan where their performance can be rewarded with merit increases and promotions.

Properly compensating employees shows you value them as employees and as human beings. When people feel valued, company morale increases and people are motivated to come to work and do a good job. Additionally, when employees know there are merits, bonuses and/or commissions, they are increasingly motivated to deliver enhanced results.

Employee Retention:

Proper compensation helps to ensure that employees will stay. Losing a good employee costs the employer in terms of lost productivity, the competency they brought to the job and the expenses associated with turnover.

Employee compensation management is an important factor in employee retention. Employee retention and low-turnover rates are great for employers who require teams that know how to perform. Those employees are also motivated to be part of the team.

Increased Productivity:

Engaged employees are productive employees. Productivity in relation to compensation starts with employees feeling valued which increases their motivation and loyalty. The longer employees are with a company, the more they know and the more efficient they become,all leading to increased productivity.

Job Satisfaction:

Creating the proper compensation plan leads to stronger job satisfaction. The right compensation program invests employees in to their work which gives them a sense of satisfaction when the company succeeds. They know they will be rewarded for their efforts - and everyone likes to be appreciated.

Well constructed compensation plans can easily more than pay for themselves.
