Our Approach

We work closely with clients to understand their business model, as well as their financial and strategic goals.

We seek metrics on the organization’s budgets, costs and performance. We then design compensation programs that complement and enhance their organization’s ability to attract, retain and motivate a qualified workforce. We follow up with clients to ensure delivery and seek feedback on our services.
We work closely with boards and management to create an understanding around the various combinations of compensation components that will drive goal setting, better align pay and performance and motivate executives to deliver maximum value.
We use various methods such as market surveys to research salary trends and project accurate pay rates for every member of your staff.  Employee compensation can focus on individual programs, group strategies, or organization-wide changes. In the case of individual programs, we incorporate your organizational goals into the compensation program. In this manner, the success of the individual greatly impacts the success of the entire organization.
As executive pay programs in non-profit organizations come under closer scrutiny and grow more complex, Compensation Connection’s consultants can play an increasingly pivotal role in providing thoughtful, timely and fully objective executive compensation advice that helps them:

  • Attract, retain and motivate top leadership talent
  • Balance the often-competing interests of key stakeholders
  • Ensure their executive pay arrangements can stand up to the closest scrutiny from regulators

Developing strategically oriented employee reward programs is the challenge of this decade.
Successful organizations will implement base salary and incentive pay strategies for all employees that produce results and in the process, build employee loyalty and commitment.
As a key focus of our engagements, we listen to the concerns of our clients and develop a compensation plan that meets their needs.  As a knowledgeable and independent third party, we can effectively bring underlying issues to the surface and elicit the truth. We act as constructive facilitators and catalysts for action. We are highly ethical in our approach and are committed to being completely candid, objective and impartial throughout the process. Each and every shred of client information is kept strictly confidential during the course of our engagement and beyond.
Organizations engage us on a project basis, a contract basis, or simply to provide coaching, training and advice to staff members. We believe our billing rates are very competitive for the level of service and expertise we provide our clients.
