HR: Compensation And Benefits

Employee compensation can be the deciding factor in whether or not a candidate accepts a job position. It can also be the deciding factor in whether a company can afford to hire additional employees.

Every organization, large and small must determine the pay structure for its employees; compensation and benefits administrators are the key specialists in charge of managing the impact of compensation and benefits packages on an organization’s bottom line, while ensuring fair and equitable pay rates for employees.
