Compensation Systems


A compensation system is part of a total rewards system that, if designed correctly, engages and retains talent for an organization. This course delves into the details of the direct compensation system, the money that organizations pay employees. It covers the elements of a compensation system, the advantages and disadvantages of base and incentive pay, how to price jobs, the legal and ethical aspects of compensation, and the issue of pay equity. Learners will engage with real-world scenarios and case studies as they learn how to design and adjust a compensation system.
