Below are frequently asked questions that we have received
from our customers.
Q: What are the main
purposes of a sound compensation system?
A: The main goals
of a sound compensation system are to attract, hold and motivate
good team members. Other purposes include eliminating morale
problems caused by inequitable pay, giving your firm a good
reputation, improving the quality of employees’ performance,
and raising their productivity for paying for performance programs.
Q: What are the Typical
“Traps” to Avoid in Starting an Organized Compensation System?
A: Here are four “snags” to avoid:
- Don’t begin by trying to see how little you can get away
with paying. Team members will resent that attitude and the
great performers will leave.
- Don’t announce the start of a compensation program and then
stall for months without acting. That looks like you want
to wait until you’re forced to begin.
- Create your own plan. You can learn from other organizations
but simply copying one or a cookie cutter one usually results
in a poor fit for the exclusive characteristics of your own
- Don’t make compensation a mystery. Explain and answer questions
about the program or you’ll start the rumor mill going.
Q: How do I know if I need a business
coach and if so where do I find one?
Q: Why should organizations provide
outplacement services to displaced employees?
A: It’s good business practice. It
shows that they care about their employees and want to assist
them even after they leave the company. This is often viewed
as reciprocation for the value the employee has contributed
in the past. Organizations who value their people provide
outplacement as a continuation of other benefits, such as
training, health care, retirement plans, and severance pay.
Outplacement programs can help avoid lawsuits. By applying
consistent, fair, and humane termination and severance practices
a company helps people to work constructively and positively
on pursuing a new career goal. This also helps companies
to maintain a positive image with their current employees,
their customers, the community, and future recruited employees.
Q: Does outplacement help companies recruit and
retain valued employees?
A: Yes. A good severance and outplacement
package is considered to be among the top three criteria for
senior level executives evaluating job offers. Most savvy professionals
do not expect a job to last forever, and they appreciate the
added security of a severance and outplacement package.
Q: Who should get outplacement services?
A: Any employee who leaves an employer. This can include
retirees, people affected by layoffs, executives, and even individuals terminated
for cause. PHR Resources Ltd. is equipped with the skills and expertise to
