What the HECK is going on with Compensation?!?

We welcome Rena Somersan back to SRKA.  She has presented to our group in the past and has also spoken at the WISHRM Conference. 

The presentation includes the backdrop of how to talk about these aspects of compensation:

  • Inflation and pay increases
  • Competition for talent
  • How to ensure you’re paying competitively with the market
  • Utilizing ALL the tools in the Total Rewards arena to attract, motivate and retain employees
  • What might a recession look like in terms of pay practices
Participants will walk away with knowledge and tools to implement in their workplaces regarding compensation strategies to address challenges in today's workplaces.
