In a BLR webinar entitled "Compensation Plan Design: The Three Cs for Achieving Success," Brooke Green, founding principal with Presidio Pay Advisors and Mary Topliff, Esq., founder of Mary L. Topliff law offices in San Francisco described the benefits of demographic testing and the analysis that can result.
Categorizing and representing job positions and their salary range compared with actual employees can illuminate inconsistencies. For example:
- Who is being paid outside the range and why?
- Are high performers earning less than low performers?
- Are new hires paid more than long-term employees?
Compliance issues should also be studied and addressed. Are race, age or gender playing a role in salary discrepancies?
