As businesses have become more complex, so has the HR function.
One of the critical areas of human resources is recruitment: Where and how do you find good people?
People are your most important asset. They are more valuable than your inventory, showroom, displays, trucks and computers. And, there’s nothing more important – to the company and the employees – than a great compensation program.
Whether you’re the owner, boss or the employee, how much you pay, or are paid, is very important. In this article I’d like to share some compensation philosophies and strategies.
If you carefully prepare your job descriptions and classify your employees in the right category, your business will be better run.
