External competitiveness is a prime objective for most organizations, but the approach taken to measure competitiveness may differ from one organization to another. In fact, competitive objectives may change within the same organization over time, especially when financial performance fluctuates.

The goal of "market pricing" is to collect and analyze data that will meet the organizational objective of identifying external competitiveness. Market pricing is not an exact science, but a sound and practical approach using summary statistics from published surveys that can add validity to the market pricing process.

This webinar will discuss practical guidelines that may be used for identifying, selecting, analyzing, and using market data to complete essential tasks in determining external competitiveness and establishing a competitive market-based pay program. The importance of communicating the compensation program effectively will also be discussed and practical tips will be provided to assist you in “getting the message” to your employees so that they may understand and, ultimately, buy into the program.
Learning Objectives:
  • How to define your organization’s compensation philosophy and market pricing objectives
  • Identification and selection of salary survey sources
  • The importance of matching benchmark jobs
  • How to interpret salary survey data
  • How to determine market rates and competitiveness of current pay
  • Considerations in developing salary ranges
  • Ways to adjust or update a pay structure
  • Tips on communicating the compensation plan
