A Blueprint for Draining the Drama from Annual Salary Reviews

Duration: 60 minutes

Salary discussions are often filled with drama. That’s because, for many employees, a conversation about their compensation is a conversation about their value as a person. Fortunately, there’s a way to conduct these talks that checks emotion at the door. Join us for this must-attend program and learn how to turn salary conversations into productive meetings that ensure alignment between employee and organizational needs. (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

More than any other employee/employer conversation, talking about pay has the highest risk of destroying morale, sapping productivity and eroding retention rates. And yet, despite the danger, more than 53% of managers admit that their company has never offered training to teach them how to talk about compensation.

In this session, top-rated speaker and performance management expert Wes Pruett will arm HR executives and managers with powerful techniques for conducting even the most emotional pay discussions with employees.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

You will learn:

  • The three most common mistakes managers make in salary reviews
  • The three most common misconceptions employees have about their pay-- and how to counter them.
  • Communication to increase confidence while talking to employees about pay
  • Why money has much more power to dissatisfy than to satisfy and what you can do about it.
  • How to prepare managers to answer questions like:
    • Why did I get a great raise last year and a small one this year even though I did more work this year?
    • My teammate makes double what I make. She’s older than me, but we do the same job. Shouldn’t we be paid the same?
    • Why does the guy who reports to me make more than I do?
    • I didn’t get my bonus this year but it wasn’t my fault—why did you set it up this way?
    • I know I’m only working 4 days a week this year, but I’m still doing the same amount of work, why did you decrease my salary?
