July 16 Dinner Event 

Our July dinner meeting will identify the nuts and bolts along with important strategies necessary for a competitive total rewards program in today’s tough environment.

Title: "Compensation Strategies to Recruit and Retain the Best Talent"
Speaker: Martina Young (Click here for bio.) 

Employers today are facing new challenges with the multiple generations in the workforce.  Using data from the 2018 National Gallagher Bench-marking Survey, we will explore national trends and best in class practices around total rewards including strategies, planning, total rewards mix, components of an effective program, and communication of your organization’s philosophy and pay plan. 

The presentation will address the different types of pay such as base, incentive, differentials, benefits, and other rewards.  Also, we will discuss identifying your competitive market for different portions of your employee population and developing a compensation philosophy for your organization.  Would you recruit for an accountant the same market you do an environmental services aide?  Understanding how these key elements work together in an additive nature to combine and create a total rewards program that is understood by management and staff, legal, fair, and competitive.   Finally, communication is key.  Your organization can have the most competitive program in the market, but if the employees do not understand it, you are not getting the intended return on the investment.  The goal is for compensation and benefits to become a neutral employee relations topic.  

Key Learning Objectives:
• Understand the exchange relationship between the employer and employee regarding total rewards.
• Understand the elements total rewards
• Learn about national trends and what best in class employers are doing for total compensation from the 2018 Gallagher National Bench-marking Survey.
• Learn about the value of the communication of the total compensation package and best practices for communicating total rewards.
• Gain strategies around compensation planning and philosophy
• Identifying your competitive market(s)
• Communication strategies for compensation and benefits programs

Core areas that this presentation addresses: 
• Compensation strategies and planning
• Developing a compensation philosophy
• Total Rewards strategies
• The value of employee communication about compensation
