Training Overview

Earn your Compensation Metrics Certification. Set an effective employee reward strategy for your organization.

As the economy rebounds from the pandemic, people are encountering inflation in their daily lives, paying more for food, gas, housing, and almost everything else. Seeing their bank balances depleted and a hot employment market, your employees are asking for raises or exploring higher-paying opportunities.

Compensation metrics are intrinsic to the smooth operation of your entire organization. Your employee reward metrics should align with your current business objectives.

Many internal and external metrics can improve your organization’s compensation strategy, including compa-ratios and salary penetration ranges. You must take a close look at annual payroll, average hourly rate, number of employees, and other essential factors.
