Tony Magaro, Southwest Research Institute; Christine Hendrickson and Nancy Romanyshyn, Syndio; Adam Swanlund, Elevance Health

What do you do when your employees are suddenly comp experts because of the pay transparency laws?  What works?  What doesn’t? What do total rewards experts wish that affirmative action and compliance experts knew about how compensation is designed, set, and managed. In this session you will learn:
• What compensation experts do all day?
• The magic of career frameworks
• How to market benchmarking roles without violating the Antitrust laws.
• The ins and outs of pay structures.
You will leave with a compensation 101 structure, a list of key terms, and answers to all of your total rewards questions.t
