October 15, 2018 Aon

It may seem like you're going through the motions during the times in the calendar year when things get really busy. But before you know it, 2019 will be here without so much as a warning. That's why these fall months are a great opportunity to allow yourself time to take a step back and evaluate whether you have the processes in place to make your compensation program truly stand out. For most businesses, it's time to get ready for year-end decision making.

Our rewards experts have compiled these four checklists to help you evaluate what needs to be accomplished before the year ends so you can close out the year strong and position your company for success in 2019.

Broad-Based Compensation Checklist

Have you looked at your pay and performance distribution curve? Do you have the appropriate data resources on hand to make informed decisions? Do you know how your total rewards programs stack up to the market, particularly when it comes to certain hot jobs? Do your managers effectively communicate pay decisions to employees? Leverage the tips in this checklist compiled by our broad-based compensation experts to turbocharge your employee rewards strategy. DOWNLOAD THE CHECKLIST

Global Compensation Checklist

Do you know what the labor landscape is like for the countries you have a presence in? Have you tapped into local colleagues in various global markets to understand what's going on in local markets?
