#WorkTrends Recap: Modern Compensation: Putting People First

When companies start to work on their compensation plans, they often do so with spreadsheets and formulas, far removed from either the people impacted by compensation or the organizational objectives. Modern compensation brings people front and center in the pay business, creating a win/win situation between organizations and individuals.

On today’s  #WorkTrends show, we were joined by special guest Tim Low from PayScale. We discussed the idea of putting people first in compensation plans and why that makes a difference in business.

Here are a few key points Tim shared:

  • How to use modern compensation practices to engage, motivate and reward top people.
  • How compensation can be a team sport, communicated transparently across the organization.
  • Why compensation should be a win/win, not a battle, between employee and employer.
