Compensation & Benefits Strategising

Course Summary

Competitive benefits and compensation packages play a pivotal role in shaping the success and sustainability of businesses by significantly influencing employee retention and company reputation. In today's competitive job market, attracting and retaining top talent is a constant challenge. Offering competitive salaries, comprehensive health benefits, retirement plans, and other perks not only entices skilled professionals to join a company but also motivates them to stay for the long term.   


When employees feel valued and fairly compensated, they are more likely to remain committed and engaged, contributing positively to productivity and overall organisational success.  


An attractive benefits and compensation package also contributes to building a positive company reputation. Word-of-mouth is a powerful force, and satisfied employees become brand ambassadors, sharing their positive experiences with potential hires and clients.   


A reputation for offering excellent benefits and fair compensation enhances an employer's brand image, making it an employer of choice in the eyes of prospective employees. This positive perception not only aids in attracting top talent but also fosters a sense of pride and loyalty among existing staff.

  • To outline the fundamental principles and key components of compensation.  
  • To use different processes in compensation, including job analysis, job descriptions, and job evaluation.  
  • To define the elements that contribute to a robust and efficient compensation and benefits program.  
  • To develop a salary structure along with associated policies.
