Regression Analysis: Using Survey Data To Set Internal Pay Levels With Precision
|Date / Time:
In January 2016 President Obama proposed a bill requiring companies to report data about how people are paid by race, gender and ethnicity. This data lends itself to the use of regression analysis to compare how people are paid in protected classes vs. people “in the majority.”
As a result, the government and organizations are demanding more from HR, especially with the greater emphasis upon “workplace analytics” (i.e. the use of statistical data for the analysis of work operations). This emphasis inevitably spreads the expectations and use of statistical approaches throughout an organization.
Essentially, HR can demonstrate greater precision in the prediction of labor rates, especially at the executive level, through the use of regression analysis.
Pay surveys are excellent sources of pay data for use in the analysis of a company’s internal pay rates. However, there is another level of precision that practitioners can apply to pay data when they possess the source or “raw” pay survey data.
Join us when David Wudyka, Managing Principal and founder of Westminster Associates, will teach you the ins and outs of this regression analysis method, which can be used in other ways to analyze data about HR programs, including performance appraisal program data.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
