Total Rewards Strategic Assessment

A total rewards strategic assessment includes a review of organizational strategy, vision, and mission; compensation; benefits; performance management; employee development and training; communications; and other aspects of total rewards. It includes managerial interviews and a review of human resources policies, procedures, and documentation. This is a comprehensive review of all aspects of total rewards and includes recommendations for improvements in each area.

Compensation Strategic Assessment

This assessment solely focuses on the compensation area only and includes a review of job descriptions, internal job evaluation process, external market data, pay structure, internal equity process, and many other areas of compensation.

Total Cash Compensation Review

This review consists of a comparison of current employee base pay, incentive, and total cash compared to market benchmarking. The review can be done by employee category and/or department. This provides a picture of how compensation compares to both market as well as your compensation philosophy.

Compensation Consulting Services

Consulting is provided in many areas of compensation to include philosophy development, appropriate market data scopes, job analysis, base pay salary structures, merit pay structures, job descriptions, policy development, internal equity reviews, discrimination analysis, strategic planning of reward/recognition programs, compensation scorecards, hiring grids, and compensation administration manuals.

Compensation Audit

This is a 21-point audit that looks at all aspects of compensation to include philosophy, job descriptions, FLSA, overtime eligibility and payment, base pay structure, market comparisons, and many other aspects of compensation to help ensure compliance with compensation and pay practices.

Executive Benchmarking

Executive benchmarking is critical to ensure you are remaining externally competitive with your executives. We recommend you benchmark your executives every two years to ensure external market competitiveness. We will work with you to develop a compensation philosophy and pay mix for your executives, help you determine appropriate benchmarking scopes, understand the employment history and relevant experience of each executive to their current position, and recommend both base and bonus compensation for each individual executive. You will receive a report that documents this independent third party process along with final recommendations.

Incentive Plans

We can design profit sharing/gain sharing plans, management plans, executive plans, customer contact plans, manufacturing/distribution plans, and sales plans. We also consult on incentive plan process development and measurement of sales plan effectiveness.

Market Benchmarking

This service includes market benchmarking of as few as one position to a handful of positions. For single positions, the market data is typically turned in 24 to 48 hours. This service provides three data points for both base and total cash specific to your industry, employer size, revenue or budget size, and geographic location.
