Now, more than ever, it is important to ensure that your employees know how their pay is determined, and how they’re valued within your organization. Employees are leaving jobs and seeking greener pastures at exponential rates. But the grass may not always be greener on the other side. A recent survey showed that over 60% of employees who are paid at market value actually believe they’re paid below market. If your employees don’t understand the “how”, “where”, and “why” behind their pay, they’re more likely to be dissatisfied and look elsewhere. In this presentation, you’ll learn why it is important to communicate clearly about your organization’s pay policies, and tips for communicating effectively.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how your employees look at their pay – which may not always be accurate.
  • Learn how your conversations can actually make them understand the how and why behind their pay.
  • That clearly communicating your organization’s pay policies and practices can go a long way to ensuring employee satisfaction.
