Title:

Merit Increases: How To Balance Budgets And Bumps In Performance-Based Salaries

SKU:WT-1001700
Format: Webinar
Description:

Workers want more money, or they may walk! That’s an important reality to keep in mind as you plan employee compensation. But the other reality is that you must maintain a financially healthy compensation budget from year to year. Plus, you must provide workers with expectations on how they can meet goals that will make your business more productive and yield higher pay for them.

And, from there you need to address several questions:

  • Where will money for potential increases come from—higher revenue, increased productivity, new products or services?
  • How can you make merit increase decisions that stand up to management as well as employee scrutiny? And, what about a regulatory agency review?
  • And how do you set appropriate rates for merit increases?
Setting up your salary budget to cover an employee’s improved or high-quality performance can be challenging. There has to be enough to cover potential raises, or you can expect to lose your talent to a competitor, but merit raises can’t break the bank. Join us on for practical tips and strategies to navigate this tricky territory with much-needed insight on how to manage salary budgets and use merit increases effectively.

Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize the differences among past, present, and future of merit pools
