Top Ten Compensation and How to Avoid Them


There are costly mistakes to avoid when working with compensation structures and policies. Our speaker, Laura Conover, will present her top 10 compensation mistakes to avoid, based upon over 20 years’ experience working with many types and sizes of organizations. Laura will take each of the top 10 mistakes, and after discussing the pitfalls with each, will describe the best practices approach with each topic. This presentation will touch on foundational compensation subjects such as market pay data, job descriptions, variable pay plans, and performance management.

Learning Objectives:

  • For entry level practitioners: deep content around foundational compensation management principles.
  • For mid-level practitioners: solid content, including specific details around compensation management, some of which they may not already know.
  • For senior level practitioners: broad coverage of compensation management principles they may know, including reminders of details they should be managing in their organizations.
