Compensation Planning

As any organization, for-profit or nonprofit, begins to scale up its operations, they’re bound to experience a few growing pains. This period in an organization’s growth is particularly important, as the habits and processes established tend to become baked into the culture rather quickly.

Issues with employee retention are particularly common among growing organizations. It is often found that employee compensation is the major perceived contributor to high turnover rates. Compensation programs are a vehicle by which an organization communicates to employees its mission, vision, values, and the strategic priorities that must be focused on.

Developing a clear strategy for how team members are compensated for their contributions to your organization’s mission or operations is essential. It lays a concrete groundwork for growth and reflects your organization’s values and vision in a more tangible way than just a mission statement. A strong compensation strategy gives your employees insight into why their contributions are valued, not just how much they are valued. Costly retention issues should definitely be avoided and refreshing your approach to compensation is an effective way to strengthen your strategies.
