Managing Compensation (And Understanding It Too): A Handbook for the Perplexed

Synopsis

This text is a lively, well-written, and carefully illustrated guide to the mysteries and mystique of how people are compensated for their efforts in all types of organizations. With clear discussions of what works, what doesn't, and why, this intensely practical handbook covers such topics as job evaluation; job pricing; employee benefit programs; pay for performance; and the compensation of executives, sales personnel, and international employees. Executives and managers without special training in pay determination and management will find it an easily accessible handbook that not only makes clear how compensation systems are conceived and developed but most importantly, how they are implemented and administrated. Its logical presentation and full coverage makes the book valuable as a text for upper-level college students as well as a solid instructional resource for teachers.
