What I Learned at Compference17

It’s hard to believe that Compference17 is over. Our time in the great city of Austin has come and gone, but we still have a ton to talk about in terms of comp knowledge and insights we’ve gained from Compference.

Even if you weren’t at Compference17, use these testimonials to get a better understanding of what you missed, and more importantly, why you should plan on attending Compference next year.

“All The Speakers Provided Takeaways – Things We Can Implement Immediately.”

This year, we curated speakers and talks with one specific goal: to provide our attendees with actionable advice they can start using right away. From Nir Eyal’s wisdom about getting a hold on evolving technologies, to Vanessa Van Edwards’ discussion about the real science behind communication, each speaker and keynote was curated with the attendees in mind.

“The Messages Were So Relevant to Me. Sessions Were Lively and Attention-Holding”

Talking compensation for 10 hours straight can sometimes be a bit dull. We’re glad that we were able to keep comp conversations interesting and engaging over two full days of Compference17. Attendees also loved that PayScalers were actively involved in the conference, and they were able to have face time with so many people working on the PayScale products.

“Great Networking and Professional Development Opportunities”

Our team has made it possible for HR and comp pros in every industry under the sun to come together and share the challenges and trends they’re seeing within their respective industries. Everyone from agriculture to healthcare is able to find networking opportunities at Compference.

“Confirmation For My Organization”

Many Compference17 attendees told us that one of the most valuable things Compference provided to them was confirmation regarding the trends and challenges they have been experiencing within their own organizations. Especially HR and comp pros who are strapped for resources, or who have a small department. Having a place and a community like Compference to confirm why you’re making the decisions you’re making in your own organization can make all the difference.
