So many great sessions, so little time. How can you make the most of your stay in Austin for Compference (besides savoring the “Live Music Capital of the World” — and maybe some breakfast tacos)? If you’re already using PayScale’s Merlin (or even still just dreaming about it) I highly recommend these four sessions to make sure you go home on Wednesday ready to wow your company with ways to get even more out of this great product.
“Understanding PayScale Data”
Merlin may be incredibly user-friendly on the outside, but it’s powered on the inside by some seriously hardcore data. In fact, data is the lifeblood of Merlin (and every PayScale product). Join Katie Bardaro, our VP of Data Analytics for “Understanding PayScale Data” (Tuesday, October 3rd, 10:30 am) to get the behind-the-scenes tour of PayScale data — how we collect it, how it compares to other sources and how you can harness it to get more from Merlin.

“Customer Story: Building and Communicating a More Competitive, Performance-Driven Compensation Strategy at MercuryGate”
Learn how Merlin works in the real world at “Customer Story: Building and Communicating a More Competitive, Performance-Driven Compensation Strategy at MercuryGate” (Tuesday, October 3rd, 3:00 pm). MercuryGate’s Jeanne Bauer, Vice President of Human Resources, and Lindsay Shivar, Compensation Manager, both current users of Merlin, will share how they transformed their compensation process from a slow, manual slog to a conversation-generating, talent-attracting, time-saving strategy. Plus, get the scoop on how the team uses Merlin to increase transparency and employee trust.
“Innovation in PayScale Data”
On Wednesday, head over to the South Capitol View Terrace to find out everything you ever wanted to know about what’s next with PayScale data and how it makes Merlin so powerful. While data used to be considered dull, today it’s crucial to conquering the modern marketplace. “Innovation in PayScale Data” (Wednesday, October 4th, 10:55 am) will be riveting! Plus, you’ll be the first to hear about our new data offering (a top-secret invention that combines science and innovation to make less work for you) and our newest product, PayScale CrowdCut.
“Merlin for Beginners and Those Curious About Survey Management”
Wrap up your morning (and work up an appetite for lunch) with a powerful training session on both Merlin and survey management. “Merlin for Beginners and Those Curious About Survey Management” (Wednesday, October 4th, 11:35 am) is a must-attend for anybody interested in the higher-level functionalities of Merlin (so, basically, every Merlin user). In a mere 35 minutes, you’ll learn the basics of generating market data and how to generate surveys.
Can’t wait to nerd out on Merlin and data with you. See ya there!
