The War for Talent and its Effect on Compensation
Virtual Event- webinar link is provided the day before the event

Event Overview:
The Total Rewards Committee of Cleveland SHRM is pleased to present The War for Talent and its Effect on Compensation. To compete for talent, organizations have been under heavy pressure to increase their entry level wages. Because of this, a phenomenon known as pay compression has reared its ugly head. This presentation is designed to help organizations recognize the issue when it arises and mitigate fallout prior to implementing a solution, and help correct compression issues that weren’t foreseen.

Learning Objectives:
● Participants will learn what pay compression is, why it is an issue
● Participants will learn how to mitigate pay compression within their organization
● Participants will learn strategies for attracting talent while maintaining their current workforce.

Members: $10
Nonmembers: $25
