Your pay structure doesn’t fully reflect organisational values and performance measures, and you think this could affect staff retention.
So you want clarity that you’ve got the right pay arrangements in place, driven by business strategy and values. You also want to show employees clear links between business strategy, performance metrics and reward. Here Paydata outline the essential steps to take when developing appropriate pay structures for your organisation.
Developing pay structures for the external labour market
Identify the behaviours
Establish the behaviours and performance metrics you want to drive, based on your business strategy and values.
Agree pay elements
Agree the pay elements required (such as base salary, bonuses/commission and long-term incentives such as LTIPs or share schemes).
Assess market practice
Assess market practice to clarify your policy and gauge typical reward levels for achieving and exceeding goals.
Model actual pay practice
Model actual pay practice against your policy position, to test where you are and what actions are needed; this also involves exploring possible underlying issues, such as possible bias in payment practice.
