Participants are asked to contribute their topical issues and share their ideas about other issues. Come prepared to learn something new about your hot topics AND to share your ideas/best practices.

    When you register, you will indicate your top three table choices on the registration form. We will make every effort to place you at the table of your top choice.

    Learn to Conduct an Effective Compensation Analysis Methodology to Determine a Job's Market Value

    Attracting and retaining your organization’s top talent requires providing competitive wages and salaries. This course will empower you with the skills needed to market price benchmark jobs and slot non-benchmark jobs into a salary structure you create based on your interpretation of your organizations compensation philosophy. You will learn a consistent methodology for conducting a competitive pay analysis and assess whether it will support your human resources hiring and retention goals and your organization’s business strategy.

    Throughout the course, you’ll gain hands-on experience developing your data utilization skills and cover:

    • Common compensation strategies, base pay structure design and the establishment and use of a job-worth hierarchy.
    • Salary survey data sources and usage coupled with a case study to bring the principles to life.
    • The role of market pricing and salary/pay structure as it relates to your organization’s business strategy.
    • How to communicate market pricing to senior management and more broadly within your organization.

    The course is ideal for HR and compensation professionals responsible for salary benchmarking and compensation program development or who have an interest in learning more about this area.

    How will the deliberations and decisions in Washington impact the benefits world? Join us to find out.

    Back by popular demand, Jim Klein, President of the American Benefits Council, will provide the inside scoop on how political developments are likely to affect the future of the Total Rewards industry, benefits and compensation practices, as well as health and retirement policy.

    The American Benefits Council, a Washington, D.C.-based employee benefits public policy organization, advocates for employers, connecting public policy and private-sector solutions to shape employee benefits for the evolving global workforce.  The Council works closely with Congress, the White House, executive branch agencies and the courts to champion legislation, regulation and legal rulings favorable to its members’ needs, and to defend the employer-sponsored benefits system from proposals that would add burdens, liabilities and costs.

    Sign up early as this event fills up fast.  You won’t want to miss Jim’s balanced point of view and quick wit!
