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 typical processes a company will set in motion when performing a compensation review.
- Review job descriptions
- Interview managers to better understand positions and promotion requirements
- Benchmark jobs to surveys
- Create salary ranges
- Group comparable jobs into grades
Two assumptions are made during this process:
- Jobs are classified correctly
- Employees are doing jobs as described
Often legal counsel is helpful or necessary to confirm these assumptions.
