Internal And External Equity: How To Create A Fair And Balanced Compensation System
Underneath all the complex formulas, dollar signs, and decimal points, compensation is really about how people are valued. So fairness is of critical importance.
Humans are competitive creatures. We can’t help compare what we’re making to what others make, both in the cubicles next to us and at your competitors across town. Determining the right balance between internal and external equity is a key aspect in developing a compensation strategy for your organization in which people feel valued.
The federal government calls this creating a “fully defensible system,” paying equal attention to the design, management and administration of the internal and external elements of your total compensation program. Failing to do so means that you’ve focused upon only one half of the total pay system!
Here’s an example: without a job evaluation plan that determines the relative worth of jobs, how will you evaluate the market value of your non-benchmark jobs? You can’t “market price” them because pricing doesn’t exist in pay surveys for non-benchmark jobs. No other organization has the same non-benchmark job as yours!
Therefore, designing, managing, and administering both internal and external equity is a critically important part of your total compensation program.
Join us to learn the internal and external issues within today’s complex compensation structure. Through the use of sample job descriptions as illustrations, our speaker, a skilled compensation consultant, will help you figure out how to perform your internal/external equity analysis and to determine if your organization is paying your employees fairly.
In just 90 minutes, you’ll learn how to evaluate whether your organization is paying fairly based on internal and external equity-based considerations.
