In order to recruit and retain high caliber employees, an organization needs to provide a package for employee compensation which is attractive, appropriate and affordable. Such packages have to not only be attractive externally, they have to be fair internally – this means a remuneration structure based also on internal job classifications.

Furthermore, the retention and motivation of high caliber employees is not as simple as paying well. The design of compensation packages has to take into account the aspirations of employees for personal development and promotion. Organisations also have to recognize the distinctions between intrinsic and extrinsic reward – extrinsic reward can be financial or non-financial and intrinsic reward requires the provision of interesting and satisfying work.

The Compensation & Benefits Administration training course will cover the question of how such processes can be managed and will cover employee motivation; performance management; extrinsic and Intrinsic reward; the maintenance of standards through the management of employee conduct; job evaluation; short term and long term incentives; the importance of the first line supervisor or team leader; the use of competencies; personal development; career planning and promotion.


Attendance to the Compensation & Benefits Administration training course will enable the participants to:

  • Describe the main influences on employee motivation
  • Realise the value of an empowered approach
  • Implement effective compensation and reward strategies
  • Improve confidence in dealing with compensation and reward issues
  • Understand the principles behind job evaluation schemes

  • Know how to apply the latest thinking to performance management practices
  • Match performance evaluation to salary structure
  • Design incentive schemes consistent with corporate strategy

The Compensation & Benefits Administration training course is designed for:

The training methodology used is designed to encourage maximum participation by all delegates. The presenter will suggest ideas and theories to the delegates and then encourage them to test out the ideas by the use of discussion, small group work, exercises, and feedback. Each day of the training course will end by delegates completing their own record of what has been learned on the day and considering how the ideas might be transferred back to the workplace.
