- How would you determine what organizations to compare your organization with?
- From an internal perspective, what are the potential consequences of having a pay structure that is out of line relative to those of your competitors? Consider the impact of pay and incentives on employees’ motivation, engagement, and retention? Provide supportive examples.
- What recommendations would you provide to ensure improved motivation, engagement, retention, and competitive advantages in the marketplace?
