Salary Communication Essentials: Best Practices For Effectively Discussing Pay Rates And Status Changes With Employees
|Date / Time:
You might not want them to, but employees are going to talk about salaries and pay rates! A study by The Corporate Executive Board’s Compensation Leadership Council found that 68 percent of employees believe their employer does not share enough information about compensation. As a result, they pursue this information from alternative sources, such as recruiters, salary benchmarking websites, and coworkers. This may lead to negative perceptions about their pay.
Both frontline supervisors and HR managers must know how to deal with employees’ pay questions, complaints, and raise requests. Without such skills, your organization is subject to higher turnover, reduced productivity, and lack of workforce focus on the organization’s mission.
With the Department of Labor’s final overtime rule slated to go into effect on December 1, 2016, millions of employees previously classified as exempt will now have to “punch a clock”—and likely won’t be happy about it. Therefore, it’s critical for HR and frontline managers to be prepared for questions and have appropriate responses for addressing employee concerns.
Join us when Mitzi Root, a seasoned compensation consultant, will discuss the tools and techniques managers must possess in order to discuss compensation with their employees. Ms. Root will provide tips on how to handle employee pay questions, complaints, and differences with confidence, so you’ll be able to communicate salary decisions effectively.

|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.
