HR: Get valued employees involved in establishing the new compensation program
The company President exclaimed to her new compensation executive. "Now that you have been in the role for HR, let's talk about how to get our valued employees involved in establishing the new compensation program you were promoted to develop."
So address the President's questions -
How do you get employees involved and what are the benefits of that involvement? Are there any potential drawbacks?

If possible, relate any personal anecdotes or experiences.View Full Posting Details
