Often organizations find that employee salaries are driven by available dollars in the budget or by candidate/employee needs, and over time you can find yourselves out of whack with the market or with lots of exceptions and inconsistencies. Using a system based on market data has many advantages:

  • It ensures competitiveness
  • Creates consistency
  • Allows for transparency and legally defensibility
  • It’s easy to communicate

All these things make it easier to fairly administer compensation.  It also allows us to periodically revisit the trends and structure as markets change.

Rhonda Palos, the VP of Human Resources for Oregon Humane Society, discusses market-based compensation and offers you a glimpse of the study OHS conducted to create their compensation system. She also shows you how OHS used The Association’s compensation and benefit survey to meet their needs.
