Three topics will be covered in a 90 minute session, featuring mini-case studies to illustrate "lessons learned" and Q&A periods. 

A brief introduction on key requirements to establish internal equity will be reviewed.  That is: what things does an HR professional have to have, to have a foundation of equity? 

This includes a high level overview of practices in job analysis/descriptions and job evaluation.  These topics are of great interest to HR and business professionals as the time and investment into these areas is significant and often doesn't offer a lot of value.  How often have you heard someone say: "I just really love to write job descriptions"?" 

Once a foundation is established though: how can an organization also have a pay for performance culture and drive engagement and high performers to do more? This is the fundamental challenge of pay for performance programs: treating everyone the same, but treating everyone uniquely!  We will have a deeper dive into what pay for performance can include, cultural challenge in the workplace and best practices in pay for performance program design.

Key learning objectives include:

  • what a good foundation for equity looks like:  job documentation and job evaluation
  • what job evaluation is and how it should be used in multiple applications in an organization (i.e. pay equity, organization design, internal equity, career pathing )
  • how pay for performance can drive employee engagement and key "prerequisites" for an organization to consider before implementing a pay for performance program
