Base Pay Administration & Evaluation

In this session, we will explore how individual pay rates are determined, as well as the rationale for delivering future pay increases to employees.

Fundamental to the pay equity discussion is the issue of evaluating and administering base pay. In fact, how well base pay is administered will make or break the success of any reward system. After all, base pay delivery is the “face” to the employees of the entire compensation program.

In this session, we will explore how individual pay rates are determined, as well as the rationale for delivering future pay increases to employees. You will learn about the various pay actions that can either increase or decrease an employee’s pay, describe various strategies for communicating pay actions, and explain how to develop and communicate salary recommendations for new hires.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • The most common issues faced in administering and evaluating a base pay program
  • Methods for monitoring and adjusting pay levels
  • The causes and solutions of compression
  • How to identify methods and processes for performing technical audits
  • How to conduct perception audits of various stakeholders.
  • How to communicate effectively with the entire workforce, and with individual employees with regard to pay actions.
