Many companies still manage their compensation planning through the use of spreadsheets, resulting in a painful and error prone administrative burden.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>It is difficult to keep pace with a changing reward culture and analysis of data is dependent upon a few highly skilled comp experts. What is more, there is increased pressure to integrate compensation with employee performance systems and to provide visibility of information for Managers in order that they can make effective compensation decisions.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The reality is that without true global integration of compensation systems, reward decisions are often inaccurate and result in overpayment of poor performers and underpayment of high performers. The cost of this is high both financially and in terms of employee engagement.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Find out how you can make the move to compensation management that reflects and is responsive to your reward strategy:</p> <ul> <li>Truly strategic, integrated Compensation Management beyond the transactional</li> <li>Supports effective compensation decision making from CEO to Line Manager, aligning to other HR initiatives</li> <li>Simple Comp Admin interface to enable responsive internal change management</li> <li>No hardware to buy no software to maintain</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>To register for this free webinar, please&nbsp;<a href="https://successfactors-events.webex.com/ec0606l/eventcenter/enroll/join.do?confViewID=1319903407&amp;theAction=detail&amp;confId=1319903407&amp;path=program_detail&amp;siteurl=successfactors-events" target="_self" title="Register for Beyond Transactional Compensation - Drive Performance and Retain Talent">follow this link</a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>ROC are delighted to be partnering with SuccessFactors to promote their latest "SuccessFocus Webinar Series".&nbsp; Full details of past and future events can be found by <a style="color: #ff6600; text-decoration: none;" href="https://successfactors-events.webex.com/mw0307l/mywebex/default.do?nomenu=true&amp;siteurl=successfactors-events&amp;service=6&amp;rnd=0.8440927519183692&amp;main_url=https%3A%2F%2Fsuccessfactors-events.webex.com%2Fec0606l%2Feventcenter%2Fprogram%2FprogramDetail.do%3FtheAction%3Ddetail%26cProgViewID%3DQ11pAwcjyiiowoN4Y2tnFl2jdcNjpvZZfX7bA3HpYRFKQfew2%26siteurl%3Dsuccessfactors-events" target="_self" title="ROC - SuccessFocus Webinar Series">following this link</a>.</p> http://www.roc-group.com/posts/show/496/en-uk Experience the Future of Talent Productivity and Insight - Are you ready?
