For most organizations, a competitive and well-designed compensation system is the cornerstone of effective employee recruitment and retention. However, statistics shows that 30% of organizations in the US have no formal pay in their system! And if you're counting small businesses, the number is higher -almost 50% of companies with 100 employees or less lack a proper compensation system in place. Obviously, with lack of inadequate and ill-designed pay system, you're bound to lose your top talents. And it is them, the top players, who become easily frustrated if salary discussions aren't addressed or handled professionally. With a solid compensation structure in place, your employees feel secure about their career and compensation.
Almost all companies report that hard-to-recruit positions have come up, and that they are vulnerable to losing a top talent. Effective employee recruitment and retention has a well-designed, competitive compensation system regardless of economy, and it is critical to have a competitive compensation structure in place to fulfill the goals of your company.
