Managing Your Class/Comp Engine Workshop January 12

Classification and compensation systems are intricate engines that help your organization drive toward success, and as a result, conducting a compensation study is one of the more complex projects an HR leader can face. Such studies involve intricate moving pieces and can face special challenges in the public sector. In the Oregon Chapter’s January 12 workshop session, the key elements of the class/comp engine will be highlighted, along with the tools you’ll want to have in your toolbox to keep your systems on the road. We’ll discuss when to keep the work in-house and when to hire an outside consultant, what communications elements you should plan for in a class/comp project, how classification structures impact other HR functions, and enjoy a scenic drive down the compensation highway.

The session will be 8 to 11:30 a.m. at Clackamas Community College in Wilsonville. Register now [PDF]
