About the Program


Compensation data, like age, is just a number...or is it? In fact, there is an array of factors that must be considered to ensure the market-competitive pay data collected and analyzed is reliable and relevant to the job and organization under review.  During this program, total rewards and human resources professionals will learn more about these factors and have the opportunity to simulate the market pricing process as the following questions are answered:

  • Why use compensation data?
  • What compensation data is available?
  • How do you choose the ‘right’ data?
  • How do you use data to ‘benchmark’ (i.e., compare actual employee pay to the market)?

Attendees will also have the opportunity to put the education and insights shared during the presentation into practice through benchmarking exercises!
