Salary Conversations: How to Have Effective Pay Discussions with Employees – On-Demand

Original Recording Date: January 19th, 2017
Duration: 90 minutes

More than any other employee/employer conversation, talking about pay has the highest risk of destroying morale, sapping productivity and eroding retention rates.  Despite the danger, many organizations don’t adequately train their managers on how to talk about compensation. In this webinar, you’ll learn how to improve the way your organization talks to employees about pay, and you’ll learn powerful techniques for conducting even the most emotional pay discussions with employees. Among other things, you’ll learn about:

  • Why company-wide pay conversations are the first step to successful one-on-one pay discussions
  • Why some companies have very public pay structures and others are hidden—and the pros and cons of each method
  • Communication tools to increase confidence while talking to employees about pay
  • Why money has much more power to dissatisfy than to satisfy, and what you can do about it
  • How to prepare managers to answer commonly-asked questions, including:
    • Why did I get a great raise last year and a small one this year even though I did more work this year?
    • My teammate makes double what I make. She’s older than me, but we do the same job. Shouldn’t we be paid the same?
    • Why does the guy who reports to me make more than I do?
    • Why didn’t I get my bonus this year?
    • I know I’m only working 4 days a week this year, but I’m still doing the same amount of work. Why did you decrease my salary?
