Rebecca Bottorff, Chief People Officer at Bandwidth (and herself a CCP), felt that “there’s got to be a better way than traditional comp.” What she meant was that the old model of doing an annual salary survey, requiring companies to participate and spend time responding to it just for the privilege of purchasing a slice of the data nine month later, didn’t make sense to her. She found PayScale. PayScale Insight’s rich and ever-fresh data and cloud compensation software made sense to her. “It’s not just data submitted by companies with a vested interest in the outcome,” she added.
Rebecca and her team now work with managers on compensation issues and adjustments in real-time using the always up-to-date data in PayScale Insight. “I will benchmark their job right there in front of them. Managers now feel empowered and confident about how we make compensation decisions,” she said. She feels that that Bandwidth’s spot on the Triangle Best Places to Work list is no accident, and that their compensation program enabled by PayScale is part of that. “PayScale helped us upgrade our talent and understand the value of young talent.”
