Advanced Techniques in Compensation and Reward Management and Advanced Best Practices to Encourage Performance, Motivate and Retain Key Talent

Pay-for-Performance and Merit-Pay Masterclass


With many markets in the region gearing up for continued post-recession business growth, many employers are facing a challenge of aligning compensation and benefits practices with business strategies, and the challenge of implementing advanced compensation techniques that improve the relationship between compensation and employee performance and business results.  Potentially uncontrolled business growth poses a new set of risks and challenges that rewards professionals have to plan and prepare for to avoid the pitfalls of pre-recession practices.

Course Objectives

This course will provide you with the guidance to manage your annual pay review process and implement merit-pay as part of your overall approach for managing pay-for-performance, which will assist the company to attract and retain employees in an increasingly competitive pay market.  This course will explain how to manage performance ratings and how to analyse the distribution curve of performance ratings, and if necessary, how to use the new approach of “snap-ratio” to manage a forced distribution curve of performance ratings.  This course will explain in practical detail how to link pay with performance, especially through the annual pay review process and using merit-pay awards.

Most employers want to ensure that they can “attract, retain and motivate” the best employees and teams, and this one-day course will cover the key areas in the overall compensation and benefits package that are linked to the performance of the employee, to enable employers to compete more effectively in the war for talent whilst achieving cost-effectiveness for the employer.
