Tess C. Taylor, PHR, The HR Writer
You may not be surprised to hear me say that compensation programs can be difficult to understand at times. Compensation programs can be complex, leading to confusion for some employees.
That’s too bad, because if employees are confused about how they’ll be compensated for their hard work, they may fail to meet performance standards. When this happens, disappointment ensues. Employees may not get the wage increases they believe they have coming to them, and employers may not get the performance they want.
