Conference Home Page

In this fast-paced environment, HR professionals need to know and understand what's happening in the local marketplace to remain competitive and relevant. Having a good handle on what other organizations are doing can help in the evaluation of internal programs, practices, policies, etc. Decisions regarding the alignment of compensation and benefits strategies to company goals should be supported by data rather than emotional response.

This presentation will provide timely information for organizations to evaluate their current compensation, benefits and total reward strategies against recently reported market data. Participants can ultimately use the survey data and discussion to consider options and alternatives for improving the overall approach to policies, practices and benefits. They will be able to return to their organizations feeling more informed and confident in making decisions about their total reward strategies that should help ensure the organization can attract, retain and motivate its employees.

Participants will have a thorough understanding of relevant North Carolina based market data, including:

  • Actual salary increase budgets for 2014 & projections for 2015
  • Reported pay differentiation based on performance
  • Average health insurance premiums for 2014
  • Workplace culture initiatives
  • Current trends and practices in creating positive work places
