Executive Compensation:  An Overview of the $12M Paycheck & Future Trends That Will Lead to Even More

While many executive pay practices continue to gain scrutiny from the public, executive compensation packages continues to soar, often at rates over 1,000x the median pay of their employees.  Wall Street Journal recently reported a 6% raise in CEO compensation, which brings the median pay of CEOs within this comparator group to $12.4 million per year!
Whether you’re a publicly-traded, private for-profit, or not-for-profit institution, executive compensation will likely fall within the realm of your responsibilities as an HR professional at some point within your career.  Guided by examples, this session will provide an overview of executive pay strategies, including base, short-term incentive, long-term incentive, and executive perqs.  We’ll also provide tips to partnering with your executive compensation committee, consultant, or board of directors to set executive compensation strategy, meet current market demands, and ensure your organization is prepared to address future executive compensation legislation.

Enabling Managers to Use Pay to Manage Employee Engagement and Performance

The way an organization pays its employees contains the most sincere truth about how that organization values employees. HR is the lynchpin in driving managers – those with direct control of employee work and careers – to deliver pay correctly and in the context of engagement desired by the organization. Into the theory of pay program design, this seminar will instruct participants on how to help managers use their pay program as an effective tool to build short‐ and longer‐term employee engagement.

Learning Objectives:

After participating in this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Help managers listen actively to employees to best understand their career and recognition drivers – to understand what their thoughts really are with respect to pay now and in the future.

2. Explain why their organization’s pay program is designed the way it is and how each element has a purpose integrated with other people systems and programs to build career engagement among successful employees.

3. Build an effective business case to managers that while fully utilizing the pay program to motivate and engage employees can be difficult (and intimidating), the lasting positive effects on employees and their collective performance make the effort well worth it.
