Pay Structure Design and Assessment

Recruiting, engaging, rewarding, and retaining the right employees are key compensation program goals for most organizations. To help you achieve these goals, rely on Cascade’s professional compensation team for the right answers at a reasonable fee.

We observe 7 best practices in developing pay programs:

  1. Define a total compensation strategy that is linked to your mission and goals
  2. Use multiple market surveys to pin point competitive pay levels for your jobs
  3. Age the market survey pay data to current or future dates that you identify
  4. Establish and maintain a current pay grade and range structures
  5. Work with you to identify equitable internal job level/grade relationships
  6. Perform assessments of your pay practices versus your competitive market
  7. Introduce administrative practices that are aligned with your pay strategy

While focusing on the above best practices, Cascade will work with you in a way that best fits your specific needs and budget.
