A League Annual Conference attendee did her homework and brought her October magazine with the relevant sections highlighted to Charles's workshop. 
Employee Performance & Compensation
October, the Municipality, pg. 7

Can we effectively link employee performance and pay? That was the question Charles Carlson, Carlson Dettmann Consulting, LLC posed at the beginning of his the Municipality article. As you can see from the photo, his article was of interest and detailed the four fundamental requirements for a performance based system. 

Watch the League's "Local Perspective" with Charles as the guest and learn more as he dives into the topic of Performance Based Compensation. Thanks to FACTv City of Fitchburg for producing this month's show! 

Charles also presented a workshop on Employee Performance at the League's Annual Conference with Human Resources Directors Sandy Behnke, Appleton and Beth Aldana, Wauwatosa detailing how it has worked in their municipalities.
